Wylfa power station is located on Anglesey in North Wales and has an area of 21 hectares covered by the nuclear site licence. Commencing electricity generation in 1971, it was the last and largest power station of its type to be built in the UK and consequently, radioactive doses during decommissioning are anticipated to be lower than at other sites. The area around the site includes several areas of environmental importance.

Cost - Lifetime
(total discounted nuclear liability)
£882m

 * The costs of discharging the nuclear liability will be incurred over a significant period of time. To take account of the time value of money, the costs are "discounted" back to a present value. Effectively this is the amount that would need to be invested today, at a set rate of interest (the discount rate) in order to pay for the liability in the future as it falls due.
