NEI Welcomes Suspension of $750 Million Nuclear Waste Fee
May 15, 2014
The Department of Energy this week notified holders of used nuclear fuel meant to be disposed of by the government that as of May 16 it would no longer collect the one-tenth-of-a-cent fee per kilowatt-hour of nuclear-generated electricity established under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. The action was ordered by a federal court in light of DOE's termination of the Yucca Mountain repository program. The court decision prohibits future collection of the fee until DOE complies with the Nuclear Waste Policy Act or Congress enacts an alternative used fuel management plan.
