Suffolk's Chamber of Commerce has written to the Prime Minister expressing concern over the future of the Sizewell C nuclear power station.
It follows the delay on the decision over building a new power station at Hinkley Point.
The Chamber says building Sizewell C would pump £100 million a year into the local economy for the next ten years.
It urges the Prime Minister for a quick decision on Hinkley Point.
A late move by the government tonight to review all of the component parts of the proposed nuclear power deal in the region has cast doubt that it will go ahead in its current form.
The French Energy giant EDF has agreed to fund a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point in Somerset which was expected to pave the way for new plants to be constructed at Sizewell in Suffolk and Bradwell in Essex.

The £18 billion Hinkley project is "on ice" to allow the prime minister Theresa May to "make up her mind", ITV News understands.
Plans for new nuclear power stations at Sizewell in Suffolk and Bradwell in Essex are likely to come a step closer today.
The multi billion pound project has been proposed by the French energy company EDF.
It's expected to approve funding tonight for the development of its new nuclear programme in the UK.
