Dominion: 3rd Nuclear Reactor To Be Built In Louisa

Posted: Updated:

LOUISA, Va. (AP) - Dominion Virginia Power officials say plans are still on track for a third nuclear reactor at the company's North Anna Power Station.
    
Critics of the plan are doubtful that the reactor will be built. They cite low natural gas prices, delays in the approval process and the Fukushima disaster in Japan.
    
Dominion vice president Eugene S. Grecheck acknowledges that demand for electricity has dropped due to the economy and natural gas is a more attractive fuel due to falling prices. But he tells The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/VZwiHq ) that Dominion's plan hasn't changed.
    
He says Dominion officials believe it's not in the company's interest, or the nation's interest, to be dependent on one fuel.
