An evaluation is made of the impact of waste heat treatment costs on the cost of power to consumers when new thermal nuclear power plants are integrated into an ongoing company system. The analysis presented attempts to analyze the incremental cost to the consumer of a nuclear-fueled thermal power unit, using Portland General Electric as the example utility, and the added increment to that cost attributable to the installation of a waste heat treatment method. The question of the importance of the resulting competitiveness in power rates between the Pacific Northwest and other regions is also indicated.
