Between the end of 1963, when the Oyster Creek plant was ordered, and the end of 1966, the expected cost of obtaining an LWR plant, excluding the fuel, rose by 35 to 40 per cent.1 This was regarded as substantial. Between spring 1967 and summer 1974 the expected cost rose by a factor of between three and four. This was sensational, and the rise continued in 1975–76.
