U.S. launches its first nuclear plant in 20 years

The United States announced launching their first nuclear plant in twenty years. According to a new report published by The Hill, the generator is expected to produce electricity that will be enough to power about 650,000 of households in Tennessee – the company assures that the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Watts Bar 2 reactor may produce as much as 1,150 megawatts of power.

“TVA’s mission is to make life better in the valley by providing reliable, low-cost energy, protecting our area’s natural resources and working to attract business and growth – all priorities simultaneously supported by the completion of Watts Bar Unit 2,” President and CEO Bill Johnson said in a statement representing TVA. “Watts Bar Unit 2 is a key part of our commitment to produce cleaner energy without sacrificing the reliability and low cost that draws both industry and residents to our area.”

TVA started to build the Watts Bar 2 reactor in 1973 but had to freeze the project in 1985 due to changing governmental regulations. The plant became the first one approved by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission after Japan’s Fukushima disaster.
