The bottom line of TVA is this: Assets are near >>$49 billion, liabilities are near >>$80 billion, ten year trend indicates increasing liabilities. Only a complete fool would think TVA can afford Bellefonte 3&4. It is questionable if they can afford Bellefonte 1&2.
Nuclear decommissioning fund listed on page 137 is $700 million short by TVA's estimate. TVA's balance on their decommissioning fund is $1.5 billion; the actual cost of decommissioning 1 nuclear plant would exceed $700 million by todays cost estimates and may run as high as $1 billion, decommissioning is not counted in the above figures.
TVA cannot afford BFN 3&4, nor is there a power need at this time out to 2033, TVA IRP https://www.tva.gov/file_source/TVA/Site%20Content/Environment/Environmental%20Stewardship/IRP/Documents/2015_irp.pdf . To continue this charade wastes everyone's time, efforts and valuable financial assets. The COL for BFN 3&4 should be immediately terminated.
