Is it really hard for a city to approve a nuclear power plant?



  1. 0 Votes

    The construction of a nuclear power plant falls more on the jurisdiction of the state rather than the city.  The city does have to approve a project, but ultimately the state has more pull in the approval process. 

    Getting a nuclear power plant approved for construction usually takes as much as 6 years but can take more than a decade.  The stringency of the building states construction and environmental laws determine the time necessary to approve a project.  For example, getting approval in a state such as California would be incredibly difficult and time consuming, but approval in Oklahoma would be considerably less difficult.
