  FILE - In this April 2007 file photo provided by the Tennessee Valley Authority, steam rises from the cooling tower of the single operating reactor at the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant in Spring City, Tenn. The Tennessee Valley Authority has concluded that construction of the power plant, initially budgeted for $2.5 billion, is about three years behind schedule and will cost up to $2 billion more. Licensing delay charges, soaring construction expenses and installation glitches have also driven up the costs of nuclear plants in Georgia and South Carolina, according to an Associated Press analysis of public records and regulatory filings.

Das Atomkraftwerk Watts Bar 1 in Tennessee ist das jüngste in den USA: es wurde 1996 in Betrieb genommen. Der Reaktor Watts Bar 2 soll Ende 2015 ans Netz gehen – nach über 40 Jahren Bauzeit. (© AP)
