Nuclear May Become Obsolete Warns US Solar Energy Chief
From The Telegraph
By Louise Armitstead
“It alarms me to read the UK debate where there is talk about further subsidies to support a new nuclear plant that will generate its first electrons in 2023,” said Andrew Birch, chief executive of Sungevity, a solar company in San Francisco.
“Given the proven cost curve in solar, that nuclear plant could be obsolete before it’s even switched on. Politicians must be careful not to lock Britons into 20th century energy prices.”
Mr Birch, a former City banker who was born in Edinburgh, was behind the “Globama” campaign credited with convincing US President Barack Obama to install solar panels at the White House.
