Subject line: From [your name]. No valid justification for subsidising nuclear power

Dear Commissioner Almunia,

No valid justification for subsidising nuclear power

In connection with the proposed new nuclear plant at Hinkley Point in south-west England (reut.rs/1fPaYlx), I'm writing to ask you to open a formal investigation into this project and associated subsidies.

I endorse the open letter to you about this from Energy Fair on www.energyfair.org.uk/home/open-letter (bit.ly/17DjIc2) In particular, I agree that there is no valid justification for subsidising nuclear power.

Sincerely,

[Please give your name, organisation (if any), position in organisation (if any), email address, postal address, and phone number.]
