Consul General of Poland in New York confirms US money going to Poland to build nuclear power plants
The U.S. government signed a deal earlier this week with Poland that will help the country develop small nuclear power reactors
Consul General of the Republic of Poland in New York, Adrian Kubicki, confirmed Tuesday that the U.S. has a deal with Poland to help them build more nuclear power plants.
"The US also had meetings with representatives of the companies that will run this project in Poland with the nuclear power plant," Kubicki said on the John Solomon Reports podcast. "And we're sure that in a few years time- this is a few years project, ensures Poland will have the first nuclear power plant established and opened."
The U.S. government signed a deal earlier this week with Poland that will help the country develop small nuclear power reactors and become less dependent on domestic coal.
Poland is moving toward renewable energy and trying to become less dependent on domestic coal and that effort has been accelerated by Russia's invasion, which has prompted Poland to become less dependent on Russian oil and gas, according to the Associated Press.
"[W]e're actually one of the fastest in Europe in that field, in becoming independent from Russia and natural resources from fossil fuels," Kubicki said.
He said that Poland overall is looking forward to this deal and what will come from it.
"We're very happy that we can use this great experience and expertise of American partners in that field," Kubicki said.
