Hinkley will cost £16 billion to build – it will run for 35 years.
The power plant will begin operating in 2023 – offering 900 jobs.
The Government is to pay £92.50 per megawatt hour for electricity produced at Hinkley – double the market rate.
£3 – the amount the "strike price" could fall if EDF builds two reactors at Sizewell in Suffolk.

China General Nuclear Power Group and China National Nuclear Corporation will be investing between 35% and 40% in the scheme, EDF between 45% and 50% and Areva 10%.
A number of other parties have been lined up to take up to 15%.
57% of the project's construction value could be spent in the UK.
The project will create around 25,0000 jobs in the UK during construction – including 400 apprentices, and 900 jobs when the site is operational.
The project will cut the UK's carbon emissions by nine million tonnes a year, and create thousands of jobs.
Hinkley Point C will be the first new nuclear power station to be built since Sizewell B in 1995.
