Good for customers

Hinkley Point C is a good deal for taxpayers and consumers:

  • The consumer price is competitive with other forms of major low-carbon generation

  • Consumers will only start paying when the plant starts to generate electricity

  • EDF Energy will shoulder all the construction costs associated with building Hinkley Point C. With our shared industrial experience, and our expert UK and international team, the UK taxpayer will not foot any part of the bill
