More people in Somerset could be happier to switch energy sources following an exhibition on nuclear power continuing today and tomorrow (November 20th and 21st) in Bridgwater.
The exhibition has been organised by the Department of Energy and Climate Change as Somerset's Hinkley Point has been identified as a potential site for a new nuclear reactor under the government's redevelopment plans.
Local residents have the opportunity to find out more about nuclear power and can even take part in a public debate tomorrow morning if they visit the exhibition at The Canalside, BCC Huntworth on Marsh Lane.
Energy and climate change minister Lord Hunt said: "Nuclear power provides reliable, cost-effective and low carbon energy and will play a vital role, alongside renewable and clean coal, in a secure energy mix for the UK."
He added that a new reactor at Hinkley Point could create 9,000 jobs for the local community during the project's construction.
EDF plans to have the first new nuclear reactor operational in Britain by 2017.
