The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing NUREG- 2242, ``Replacement Energy Cost Estimates for Nuclear Power Plants: 2020-2030.'' This report updates previous estimates of replacement energy costs for potential shutdowns of U.S. nuclear electricity- generating units due to a temporary power reactor outage to implement safety modifications or the loss of generation associated with a possible severe reactor accident. The final NUREG largely, is unchanged from the draft issued for public comment but has been revised to reflect the recent change to retirement dates for Byron Units 1 and 2, and Dresden Units 2 and 3.
