Southern, Scana, NRG Most Likely to Build Reactors

Southern Co., Scana Corp. and NRG Energy Inc. are the companies most likely to begin building new reactors when they get U.S. permission, Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairman Gregory Jaczko said.

The regulator will start making decisions on applications to build U.S. reactor in 18 months, Jaczko said in an interview today at Bloomberg’s headquarters in New York. Of the 13 applications the commission is reviewing, the three companies are “actually doing” preparation work at proposed sites, he said.
