  After the war, the United States government encouraged the development of nuclear energy for peaceful civilian purposes. Congress created the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) in The AEC authorized the construction of Experimental Breeder Reactor I at a site in Idaho. The reactor generated the first electric-ity from nuclear energy on History of Nuclear It's really expensive to develop nuclear power plants, and first big reason why is sheer size. They are huge. The average generating capacity of coal plants in the United States is ://

The sector includes units that are subject to the Acid Rain Program and any other electricity generators that are otherwise required to report to the EPA CO 2 mass emissions year-round according to 40 CFR part Domestic licensing of source material: Part Domestic licensing of production and utilization facilities: Part Environmental protection regulations for domestic licensing and related regulatory functions: Part Licenses, certifications, and approvals for nuclear power plants.

Part 53 [Reserved] Part 54 New Reactor Operator Licensing. The NRC also licenses all individuals who either operate or supervise the operation of the controls of a new commercially owned nuclear power reactor or test/research reactor in the United States; however, there are differences in this process from that for operating nuclear power The NRC regulates commercial nuclear power plants that generate electricity.

There are several types of these power reactors. Of these, only the Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs) and Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs) are in commercial operation in the United States.
