The purpose of this final forum is to help Utahns learn about the economics of nuclear power as they relate to public policy. Topics of discussion included nuclear power's cost of electricity generated, a comparison of nuclear power and other generating assets over their useful lives, and whether or not nuclear power's economic profile works for Utah's electric needs.
