Billion-euro nuclear shutdown in Germany

In English on 2011/03/17 at 10:10

The German government has declared a three-month moratorium on nuclear power, in which eight reactors will stay offline, checks will take place and nuclear policy may be reconsidered.

Chancellor Angela Merkel decreed yesterday that the country’s nuclear power reactors that began operation in 1980 or earlier should be immediately shut down. Those units closed yesterday and were joined by another unit already in long-term shutdown, making a total of 8336 MWe in generation offline under her direction.
