The map shows the location of every commercial power reactor in the United States that is operable, under construction, or ordered as of March 31, 2019. Tabular information includes each reactor's generating capacity (in Net MWe), design type, date of commercial operation (actual or expected), and reactor supplier.
The 2019 U.S. map contains information never before shown on the Nuclear News maps: The current license expiration date for every operating U.S. reactor. Whether a reactor is destined for premature closure or for decades of carbon-free generation, seeing at a glance how many years of licensed operation are available to a reactor today can provide some perspective on the owner’s plans.
The U.S. map also features an updated, easy-to-read table on the status of the 10 reactor projects that have had an application for a combined construction and operating license docketed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The Vogtle-3 and -4 construction project tops the list, and its location is indicated on the map with a green star. You’ll find every project on the map with a color-coded star: light green for the four projects with approved licenses but no announced plans for construction, blue for the two license applications that have been suspended, and gray for the three projects with terminated licenses.
Note: U.S. nuclear power plants are shown on the U.S. map only, not on either of the worldwide maps.
