Congress is preparing a suite of new clean energy provisions that include federal subsidies and support for the existing domestic nuclear fleet. Less clear is how existing nuclear subsidies from states like Illinois, New Jersey and New York would limit eligibility for federal benefits. On the other side of the coin, New Jersey’s 2018 zero-emissions credit (ZEC) program and Illinois’ newly inked carbon-mitigation credit program include provisions that reduce their nuclear support obligations in the event the federal government steps into that role.
