Nuclear energy

nuclear energy

the world takes so much precaution in our nuclear plants. they take enough precaution that the concrete is 4 feet thick. we also have a backup safety systems that function in the event of an emergency.

Three places in the united states that have nuclear power plants

The Palo Verde power plant in Arizona has three reactors. Fort Calhoun in Nebraska with a single reactor. Crystal River power plant in Florida with one reactor.

three advantages of nuclear power

  • Nuclear power generation does emit relatively low amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). The emissions of green house gases and therefore the contribution of nuclear power plants to global warming is therefore relatively little.
  • This technology is readily available, it does not have to be developed first.
  • It is possible to generate a high amount of electrical energy in one single plant.
