Closing Nuclear Plants

François Hollande has promised to close the Fessenheim nuclear power plant, which has reached the end of its lifetime. He may close others, depending on whether or not he reneges on his agreement with the Greens (at the moment, he seems to have cooled on the plan). But what will closing plants cost? A nice article by Brad Plumer is illuminating on this point.

President Hollande has not signed an agreement with the Greens. The socialist Party has signed an agreement with the Greens. As soon as that was done, President Hollande emphasized that it was in no way binding for him, and that the only thing that was binding for him were his own pledges during the presidential campaign.
