Tennessee governor backs nuclear energy and TVA's plans for SMRs
During a tour last week of the Tennessee Valley Authority’s two-unit Watts Bar nuclear power plant in Tennessee, Gov. Bill Lee said, "Nuclear energy is so important not only because it is an important part of TVA's power generation but also because of the value that clean energy via nuclear energy can have for sustainability in this country,” according to an article in the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
Lee added that he would support TVA’s plans if it decided to build small modular reactors.

Mark is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, a faculty fellow at the McCormick School, and co-founding partner in the Montrose Lane energy-tech venture fund. He writes frequently for numerous publications (Wall Street Journal, Forbes, USA Today, TechCrunch, etc.) and is author of the book, Digital Cathedrals: The Information Infrastructure Era, (January 2020) and, Work In The Age Of Robots (2018). With the book he co-authored in 2005, The Bottomless Well, Bill Gates said: “This is the only book I’ve ever seen that really explains energy.” He served as chairman and CTO of ICx Technologies, helping take it public in a 2007 IPO. Earlier Mark served in the White House Science Office under President Reagan. Prior to that, Mills was an experimental physicist and development engineer in microprocessors and fiber optics, earning several patents, at Bell Northern Research (Canada’s Bell Labs) and at the RCA David Sarnoff Research Center. He holds a BSc Honours in physics from Queen’s University, Canada.
