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.

While there are potential challenges and benefits of this transition for the future of energy production in Wyoming and beyond.

TerraPower is in a private-public partnership with the US Department of Energy on this project, as well as with power company PacifiCorp.
