No worries, Charlie. A new UK nuclear plant with more than three times the capacity, Hinkley Point C, will be going online in 2026.
Of course, anti-nukes in Scotland will have some 'splaining to do when they realize they're sending £12.4 million over the border to England each year, just to keep the lights on!
As the NIA's Tom Greatrex points out:

"As the current energy crisis demonstrates, without nuclear the cost of the electricity we rely on is higher, causes pollution and leaves us reliant on burning imported fossil fuels. That’s why we need new nuclear – to get to net zero and provide the reliable, secure and clean power to live our lives.”

At least someone in Scotland is paying attention.
