Anti Nuclear Activists Oppose Calvert Cliffs Third Reactor
The Chesapeake Safe Energy Coalition (CSEC) released a new report outside of the Maryland Public Service Commission headquarters on March 31 that shows renewable energy sources can produce more electricity than nuclear power plants and for less money.
These antinuclear groups want to stop the planned construction of another reactor at the current Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant site. They are asking the Public Service Commission to deny UniStar Nuclear Energy, the joint venture of Constellation and Electricite de France, its request to build a third nuclear reactor in Calvert Cliffs, Calvert County.
Members of the Chesapeake Safe Energy Coalition include: Beyond Nuclear, Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility, Clean Water Action Green Party (MD), Maryland PIRG, Nuclear Information and Resource Service, Public Citizen, and Sierra Club-Maryland. (HometownAnnapolis.com, 4/1/09)
