Nuclear numbers

Nuclear energy accounts for 20 percent of U.S. electricity generation.

Nuclear energy accounts for some 70 percent of carbon-free electricity.

Over half of U.S. nuclear plants are scheduled to retire between 2030 and 2040.

We may be producing a higher percentage of carbon-free electricity in 2030 than in 2040.
