TVA decided in August that it would complete the 1,260-MW Bellefonte 1 reactor. In the past, TVA said the project would cost about $4.9 billion and could enter service by 2020. The company has said it would take about six years of construction time to finish Bellefonte 1, which was already about 55 percent complete. But the ultimate cost and timing for Bellefonte depends on work at Watts Bar 2.
