On June 2, 2021, TerraPower, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon and PacifiCorp announced efforts to build and operate a Natrium reactor demonstration project at a former coal plant in Wyoming.
The companies are evaluating several potential locations in the state. A decision on a location is expected by the end of this year.
U.S. Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, who spoke via video feed at the event, said, “We are ready to make investments in advanced nuclear technology so that communities all over the country can enjoy the benefits of safe and reliable and clean power that will leave them with lower energy bills and greater opportunities.”
