There is a new danger that the government could allow the “RAB” model (aka the #nucleartax or #ridiculousatomicbailout) to help pay for the risky construction of the multi-billion pound mega-nuclear project, Sizewell C. With uncertainty of Chinese investment in Hinkley C and CGN’s 20% involvement with Sizewell C {THE GUARDIAN} it could and would mean all of us paying a surcharge on our energy bills, whichever provider we are with and regardless of what tariff we are on – for years before any energy is generated. Remember we still have the high strike price agreed with EDF for Hinkley C to pay for, when it starts generating power. There is a real danger that the high cost of building Nuclear Power stations will put many, many in fuel poverty when the costs kick in.
