Operation Efficiency

America will need 20% more electricity by 2030 and there's a lot of talk about clean energy to meet that demand. Wind and solar power provide viable energy options. But they cannot do it alone. Solar and wind operate only when the sun shines or the wind blows. Nuclear energy is the only large-scale power source emitting no greenhouse gases, operating 24/7, keeping electric costs affordable.

Natural Resources

Today, nuclear energy supplies 20% of the nation's electricity without emitting any greenhouse gases. Nuclear energy produces large amount of electricity with a small environmental footprint. To match the output of just two nuclear reactors with wind power would require land 10 times the size of Washington, D.C. Matching that same nuclear energy production with biomass power would require land larger than Delaware.

The carbon free options

There is a lot of talk about clean energy, but what are the facts? Many people don't realize nuclear energy accounts for nearly three-quarters of all U.S. electricity production that doesn't emit greenhouse gases. To meet the 2050 climate change goals in legislation approved recently by the House of Representatives, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates the need for 180 new nuclear power plants.
