EPA rule not such a boon for nuclear after all -- utilities

U.S. EPA's greenhouse gas proposal for existing power plants doesn't do enough to boost nuclear energy, advocates for the industry say. Two months after EPA unveiled the proposal -- and just over two months before the end of the public comment period -- companies that have invested billions of dollars in the United States' primary source of zero-carbon baseload energy say they are still reviewing the draft. But while the industry has yet to reach a consensus position, some utilities say they are discouraged by the way the June 2 proposal treats new nuclear projects that are coming online or attempts to help existing facilities overcome the economic factors that threaten them with retirement.
