Power Generation Companies Attempt 'NuStart'

A handful of major power companies banded together in 2004, in a consortium to build and operate nuclear power plants in the U.S.  The group had its sights on getting a nuclear power plant construction and operating license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).  They call themselves NuStart Energy.
In the next series of posts we will explore NuStart’s progress to date and look at each member from an investor’s perspective.  We will also look at the implications of changes in the alternative energy marketplace over the last nine and a half years.  None of the members are small-cap companies, but there are plenty of smaller companies that have been impacted by the formation of NuStart. 

Current NuStart membership:

DTE Energy (DTE:  NYSE)
Duke Energy (DUK:  NYSE)
EDF International of North America, subsidiary of EDF Group of France  (EDF.PA)
Entergy Nuclear, subsidiary of Entergy Corp. (ETK:  NYSE)
Exelon Corporation (EXC:  NYSE)
FPL Group (FPL:  NYSE)
Progress Energy (PGN:  NYSE)
Tennessee Valley Authority
General Electric (GE:  NYSE)
Westinghouse Electric Company, subsidiary of Toshiba Group (TOSBF: OTC/BB)
