British Gas owner Centrica is reportedly planning to join EDF in backing the Sizewell C nuclear power station in Suffolk.
According to Daily Mail, Centrica is prepared to take a stake in the project which is currently at a stage to attract new investors.
A few days ago, some of the UK’s biggest unions sent a letter to the Business Secretary warning the future of the plant will be in jeopardy if the government delays a government investment decision (GID).
Ministers had previously committed £100 million for the development of the Sizewell C nuclear plant.
ELN has approached Centrica and EDF for a response.
