Construction of a $925 million clean-energy power plant in Lordstown should begin this summer, according to a press release issued today from Clean Energy Future, the project’s developer. The center is projected to have a $26 billion long-term economic impact on the Mahoning Valley economy and local and state governments, CEF projects. There are newspaper articles and Twitter messages suggesting that certain political leaders support sustaining bankrupt nuclear plants. Such support would seek to create a new law that would force Ohioans to “bail out” privately-owned uneconomical nuclear plants in Ohio."
