[cdn-nucl-l] Food for thought regarding competition
I recently found the following statement in Bloomberg Powerlines, a daily publication that summarizes electricity prices for active traders.
Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Wholesale power prices gained across
the Western U.S. amid higher natural-gas costs, trading for the
start of the workweek, and lower production at a nuclear reactor
It is very common for similar statements to appear in the publication. If I was a natural gas trader or producer and I frequently saw such statements, I would probably be interested in doing all I could to discourage production at nuclear reactors.
Rhetorical question: Do you think that there are any politically influential people involved in producing or trading natural gas that might be interested in selling their product at the maximum possible price that the market will bear?
