Power plant cooling towers

An important milestone in removing irrational barriers to nuclear energy development is about to take place. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is soon expected to sign AB 384, a bipartisan bill which will remove the over 30-year old moratoria on the construction of new nuclear facilities in the state. 

This straightforward proposal simply allows clean, emissions-free nuclear power to be considered by state policymakers when planning for Wisconsin’s energy future. CEA joined a coalition of voices to urge the Wisconsin legislature and Governor Walker to repeal the moratorium and applauds them for moving forward.  

Now, a new conversation on how nuclear power can help meet the future energy needs of consumers across Wisconsin can take place.
