Swiss to vote on faster nuclear phaseout

Switzerland votes Sunday on whether to speed up the process of phasing out the country’s nuclear power plants, in a move that would shutter three of its five reactors next year. Just a few months after Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant was destroyed in the March 2011 tsunami disaster, Switzerland decided to gradually close its nuclear plants, but did not set a clear timeline. The government’s plan was to decommission five ageing reactors, which today produce around a third of the country’s electricity, as they reached the end of their safe operational lifespan.
