How new nuclear power plants can re-energize communities when coal plants close

The closure of coal-fired generation plants can lead to significant economic implications for the local community, particularly the loss of jobs.

However, small modular reactors (SMRs) could provide an alternative solution that offers economical, carbon-free electricity, more and better-paying jobs, and similar performance on the grid.

The deployment of SMRs would require acknowledging nuclear power, especially SMRs, as a zero-carbon solution, federal and state policy support, clean energy incentives targeted towards solutions that re-employ people, and support and funding for local communities to assess SMRs as an option.

Read this report to understand how SMRs could re-energize coal communities.
