A Submission

These are considerations in comparisons of costs of Alternative Sources of power and conventional/nuclear power sources.

They are "hidden costs."

One such cost is that of making safe, old nuclear power stations whose operating life is finished costs. Have figures for this decommissioning of nuclear plant been included in quotations for them? A figure of more than $2Bn is at present (2007) being considered for decommissioning nuclear plants in the UK. (The cost of decommissioning Dounrey in Scotland has yet to be separated from that total, to determine Generating Board costs.)
