Much of the value of today's nuclear deal will be judged on the "strike price" agreed - a pre-arranged price at which the Government ensures producers will be paid for the electricity they generate.
The Government confirmed that that strike price would be £92.50 per megawatt hour (around double the current rate) fixed over 35 years but rising in line with the CPI inflation rate.
That price drops to £89.50 if a deal for another new nuclear plant at Sizewell C is agreed.
