About Sizewell C

A new nuclear power station for Britain

Sizewell C will be a 3.2-gigawatt power station generating low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes. It will be a close copy of Hinkley Point C which is already under construction in Somerset. These new power stations will play a key role in our energy future, supplying reliable, clean electricity for at least 60 years.

Nuclear has been part of life in East Suffolk ever since Sizewell A was built in the 1960s. Sizewell B is producing clean power for millions of homes today. Sizewell C will begin another chapter of safe nuclear generation in the region. The new power station will bring lasting economic benefits to Suffolk and has strong local support.
