Expected New Nuclear Power Plant Applications in the U.S.

According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission there are 21 separate Expected New Nuclear Power Plant Applications in the U.S. for 32 nuclear power units over the 2007-2009 period. [1]

Where to Look

A current list of possible new nuclear power station applications, compiled by the NRC and updated in mid-October 2007, is here.

What to add

We are aiming to build a complete list of new nuclear power station applications and a state-by-state breakdown on what is proposed where. Once that's done it would be nice to start building profiles on the individual companies, their track records in running nuclear power stations, their political contributions, the PR and lobbying consultants they have hired and their PR and lobbying activities.

Have a look through the NRC list and add the details of the company, reactor design, site, state and whether the there are existing operating plants there.

If you have any questions about how to do this project or just need a little help, feel free to email SourceWatch staff editor Bob Burton at bob[at]sourcewatch.org (replace the "[at]" with an "@" - done to prevent spam).
