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.

This book describes many significant experiences over a period of about 50 years in the field of nuclear power–generated electricity. The first 25 years deal with the development, design, safety, manufacturing, licensing, and operations of light water reactors and particularly of General Electric (GE) boiling water reactors. That was also the time when perceptions about nuclear power changed and no new orders for nuclear power were forthcoming. The subsequent 25 years cover the formation and operation of engineering/management firm S. Levy Incorporated (SLI), which provided consulting services to the entire nuclear industry.
