In a bit of a mahoosive U-turn, it looks like the UK government's going to invest in another nuclear power station – but they promise this time it'll be cheaper.
What it means: Last time the government invested in nuclear power at Hinkley Point C, it didn't go so well. Long story short is that the contractor, EDF, bore all the risks in exchange for UK customers paying the price – and it's reeeal pricey.
Sounds nice enough, and both unions and the energy industry have welcomed it – more jobs, lower carbon power generation, and government funds borrowed at low interest to finance it all.
But people have questions. It'll cost £75 per megawatt hour, which is cheaper than the last nuclear power station but still more expensive than, for example, offshore wind. Also, the government's been making cuts across public services in other areas, so some are going to be wondering where the £16bn came from to make this investment.
