OREM, UT--(Marketwired - November 21, 2016) - Blue Castle Project, the leading new nuclear plant project site in the Western U.S. will conduct a webinar providing power pricing and equity participation options for load serving utilities and other power purchasers in the Western U.S. from the Blue Castle Project, a two-unit nuclear power plant under development in Green River, Utah. The webinar will occur on December 8, 2016 at 11:00 AM MST. This webinar will address the high level financial, economic, regulatory and operational advantages associated with the Blue Castle Project, and its electrical output available throughout the Western U.S.
The webinar is also intended for Investor Owned and Public Power Utility executives, power procurement personnel, regulators and elected officials who have oversight for power costs and procurement risk. Members of the media may also attend.
More than 13,000 MWe of coal fired electrical power is scheduled for retirement throughout the Western U.S. All of this retiring capacity cannot be prudently replaced with natural gas units and/or intermittent renewables alone. The recent selection and regulatory rate recovery approval of an existing nuclear power resource to replace about 30% of a Western U.S. coal plant retirement validates that a balanced resource mix, which includes nuclear power, is part of a preferred, stable, low cost and environmentally optimal approach to replacing retiring coal fired power.
The Blue Castle Project has reduced deployment, financial, and regulatory risk with its advanced project development over the last 10 years. The project provides a clear path to include new nuclear power as a portion of a well-balanced resource portfolio with reduced risk and financial commitment. Blue Castle Holdings has announced, jointly with Westinghouse Electric Company, pursuing the Blue Castle Project development based on the Westinghouse AP1000 design. Click here for that announcement.
