If I lived there I wouldn't be too happy about paying for electricity a decade before it's produced.
Although the plant won't start producing power until March 2018 at the earliest, customers are already paying for its construction. In January, customers saw a monthly increase of $12.11 per 1,000 kilowatt hours to pay for nuclear projects, sparking such an uproar that the utility then lowered its rates, reducing the monthly nuclear charge to $4.31 per 1,000 kilowatt hours.
Climate Progress did a story on this project
back in May.
A decade is a pretty good ballpark for how long it takes a new nuclear plant to get online, although they always run over schedule and budget. So you're probably looking in the early 2020s, realistically.
Anyway, it's certainly good that it's replacing 2 coal power plants. I'm just glad I don't have to pay for the project
