What about renewable energy, energy efficiency, and energy conservation?

The proposed legislation keeps energy efficiency, energy conservation, and renewable energy as our state’s highest energy priorities.   Wherever they are technically feasible and cost effective, they are given top priority.  

The legislation is written to open the door to advanced nuclear energy, not to close the door on energy efficiency, conservation or renewable energy.   It locates advanced nuclear power behind energy efficiency, energy conservation, and renewables in our state’s priority listing.  In addition, it requires nuclear power to meet technical and cost criteria that prevent it from being chosen for an identified energy need that can be fulfilled cost effectively by renewables and efficiency.

"Wherever they are technically feasible and cost effective"
"cost effective"

I think I have some bad news...
