Around one-third of Finns believe the construction of a sixth nuclear power plant in the country could push up household electricity bills - but most think that prices will remain unchanged or could even fall. The findings of a survey carried out for national public broadcasting company YLE revealed that 49% of respondents felt that energy prices would remain unchanged if Finland builds a sixth nuclear reactor, while 8% believed that prices would fall. However, 33% said they thought prices would rise. The 'don't knows' accounted for 10% of the 1007 people, selected to be representative of the Finnish population, polled for the survey between 22 and 25 March by independent market research company Taloustutkimus. Fennovoima, TVO and Fortum have all submitted applications to build the sixth reactor, and a parliamentary decision on the proposals is expected in June. According to YLE, a recent study by Fennovoima claimed that household electricity prices could fall by 10% if it gets the go-ahead to build the sixth reactor.
