What is cheaper - Solar or Nuclear

Its - Safer by any measure, faster to deploy, YOU get the benefit of lower bills, its better for the environment, and now it's even cheaper - well certainly will be by the time any nuclear comes on line.

So even if we were to leave out the multi-billion loan guarantees and the other sweeteners required for new nuclear, solar PV will be beating nuclear on strike price alone by 2018, some five years before Hinkley Point C is due to be completed.

By 2019, the Solar Trade Association predicts that the industry will require a strike price of £86, falling year on year thereafter, paid over 15 not 35 years and with no nuclear-style small print permitting a possible increase in strike price once those terms are set.  The nuclear strike price headline is £92.50/MWh CPI-linked 2023.
