The United States makes a particularly interesting case study for Chris Huhne. So desperate is the US Administration to promote new nuclear that it has offered tax credits which amount to more than 100% of construction costs – and even so interested utilities have been unable to raise any private capital whatsoever. Referring to this as ‘nuclear socialism’ –a horrible thought for our free-marketeering Lib Dems – Amory compares this incomparable government largesse with the support programme for Chevrolet’s electric vehicle, the Volt. This will be retailing at $41,000, with a tax credit from the Government of $7,500. “Imagine if the tax credit were $50,000!”
