Making emergency planning zones smarter: a risk-informed approach for new reactors
The health and safety of the public and protecting people from the consequences of a significant release of radioactive material has been a top priority since the early days of the civilian nuclear energy program. After World War II, it was realized that the core inventory of radionuclides is a potential hazard. From this knowledge, emergency planning zones (EPZs) for nuclear power plants were established.
Southern Nuclear operates six nuclear facilities at the highest levels of safety and reliability, creating carbon-free electricity for millions of homes and businesses. It’s also the licensee of two nuclear units under construction at Plant Vogtle, which will be the first new units built in the U.S. in 30 years.
