Default Satsop, an expensive failure

Satsop is the site of the planned Satsop Nuclear Power Plant, designed to house two 1,250-megawatt pressurized water reactors. Construction of the Satsop Nuclear Power Plant began in 1977 and was halted in 1983 after a $61 million budget shortfall, leaving the plant 75% complete. The twin cooling towers that are part of the unfinished plant are a well-known landmark in the area.

Ahh the money we spend on nothing or waste. Nice rolling lines and a far subject up from the trees.

I agree, The WPPSS defaulted on $2.25 billion worth of municipal bonds sold to finance the project, one of the largest municipal bond defaults in U.S. history.

Thanks for looking and commenting!

Regardless, nice shot.
