PECO/DOE Spent Fuel Contract

The Spent Fuel agreement permits PECO to reduce projected payments to the Nuclear Waste Fund in an amount equal to those costs reasonably incurred due to the Energy Department's failure to take possession of used fuel. PECO will be able to adjust charges to the fund if it can demonstrate that the added costs are the direct result of the Energy Department's failure to move fuel from the Peach Bottom site. DOE estimates that this could amount to $80 million over the next 10 years. It appears that there will be no effect on the Nuclear Waste Fund's ability to finance the completion of the disposal system.

The July 20 deal is the first such agreement and applies only to used fuel from PECO's Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station. Nevertheless, the department intends the agreement to serve as the framework for similar agreements with other utilities on a case-by-case basis.
