The only coal-to-nuclear power reactor plant broke ground in Wyoming

The world’s only coal-to-nuclear reactor plant just broke ground, which is a significant transition in Wyoming, where a coal plant is being repurposed into a nuclear power facility.

The energy plant’s conversion reflects a broader trend towards cleaner energy sources as nations strive to meet emission reduction goals.

The move is seen as a potential boon for job creation and economic development in the region, while also addressing environmental concerns associated with coal-fired power generation.

The nuclear power plant, TerraPower, is expected to come online in 2030. TerraPower will first build the non-nuclear parts of the plant while the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission reviews its construction permit application.
