Yes you were right. Got a few terms wrong but the concept right.
Last I know of France was about had an 80% nuclear power electric grid. So they may be able to run in the off peak hours with out backing the nukes down. They can coast down some coal or gas fired plants.
RightOnTheBorder says in #4 that France is a power exporter so that also gives them an out let to avoid lowering the nukes out put.
The law doesnt make sense to me on a number of levels (personal freedom first and formost) but it probably wont effect the operation of the nukes.
Thanks...we both agree that this is simply a silly stunt, but as you say, if they’re careful, they won’t put their power plants at risk.
