Locals to debate low-carbon power options



Locals to debate low-carbon power options
Residents of Lancashire are being invited by the government to give their opinions on nuclear power.

The move comes following the confirmation by the Department of Energy and Climate Change that the county is a potential site for a new nuclear power station.

"As we head towards a global agreement to tackle climate change the UK needs to transform its energy sector, replacing old infrastructure with high tech, low carbon energy sources," said energy and climate change minister Lord Hunt.

He added: "A new power station could provide as many as 9,000 jobs in the area during construction."

Local people will be able to find out more about the proposals and put forward their opinions this week at a public exhibition at Lancaster Town Hall on Thursday (November 26th), Friday (November 27th) and Saturday (November 28th).

Officials hope the move will encourage the growth of cleaner energy resources around Britain.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19477596-ADNFCR
