Locations / Information about Reactors in the United States

Currently the oldest operating reactors in the U.S. are Oyster Creek and Nine Mile Point 1 BWRs, which started up in 1969. The R.E. Ginna PWR started up in 1970. These early reactors generate about 500 MWe. The newest reactor is Watts Bar, an 1100 MWe PWR,  in Tennessee.

Applications for new reactors have been made in 2007.

The following are some useful links providing information about US reactors:

Department of Energy Energy Information Administration (EIA)

Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI)

The Site Map links to all major pages of the NEI site. Industry Data includes:

Generation Statistics (Historical, state-by-state, and international data on electricity generation from the nuclear industry and other generation types).

Operating Costs (Data on the operating costs of the U.S. nuclear, coal, gas and oil electric industries, including information on fuel, operations and maintenance, and other costs).

Performance Statistics (Aggregate information on the U.S. nuclear industry's capacity factors and outages, and capacity factors for other generation types. Capacity factor, the most common measure of plant performance, compares actual generation to the maximum possible generation for a given period of time, usually on an annual basis).

Clean Air (Quantitative data on emissions of carbon dioxide and other pollutants avoided by the use of nuclear energy).

Plant Information (Nuclear power plant information, including location, size, operations, and ownership).

License Information (Nuclear power plant license expirations and renewals).

Power Uprates (Approved and future power uprates at U.S. nuclear facilities).

Safety and Regulatory (Safety accident rates, significant events and unplanned automatic scrams at U.S. nuclear power plants).

Used Fuel (Status of used nuclear fuel and payments to the Nuclear Waste Fund created to pay for a permanent national repository).

Use NEI's U.S. Nuclear Plants State-by-State Interactive Map below to find what reactors are located near you and how these contribute to the state's electrical grid.

Alternatively, you can use an Argonne National Laboratory INSC imagemap for more detailed location information. 

Geospatial Coordinates

In the last half of the 1990s, the NRC had provided geospatial coordinates for the US nuclear plants. That information, together with the availability of several satellite map and aerial view websites, had resulted in webpages with links showing overhead views and maps. Mapquest, Delorme, and Terraserver maps and aerial views. 


The following list provides plant addresses, plant owners, and operators in case you may wish to visit their visitor or training facilities.  Websites are linked from company names. Google searches specific to the plant are linked under the plant heading.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission

The NRC has an excellent website provides information about the nuclear reactors, fuel cycle facilities, uranium mills, decommissioning facilities, and extensive licensing and regulatory information. Current status of new reactor licensing, upgrades, and license renewals are also reported.

Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
