View Abstract

All across the United States, electric utilities are now faced with the prospect of prematurely abandoning partially completed nuclear units.

They force regulators to make the unsavory decision as to the appropriate allocation of the fixed costs sunk in the abandoned projects between ratepayers and stockholders.' If a significant number of these plants are abandoned, the dollars at stake (estimated to be as large as $66 billion') in any ratemaking division of accountability are staggering.
