Welcoming the largest generator of clean power in the US

Rich Powell writes in The Hill on new nuclear power in the U.S.

The C3 Take
  • Nuclear power is our largest source of carbon-free power, but America’s fleet has begun to shrink due to under investment, inefficient regulations, and bad optics.
  • The global energy crunch is forcing many governments to reevaluate their stance on nuclear energy.
  • Southern Nuclear will bring two new nuclear reactors online in Georgia next year which will produce enough clean energy to power 1 million homes and businesses.
  • America can spur more nuclear development by reducing regulatory barriers, increasing permitting approval times, and investing in new technologies.

“Clean, reliable power and new international energy markets — it almost sounds too good to be true. America invented nuclear power. And once again, we are putting the pieces in place to lead the world.”
