The Future of Nuclear Power in Utah

  • Hinckley Caucus Room (Gardner Commons) 260 South Central Campus Drive, Suite 2018 Salt Lake City, Utah 84112 (map)


Although nuclear power has long promised a reliable, affordable source of low carbon electricity, new reactor construction, especially “first of a kind” projects like the one the Utah Associated Municipal Power System (UAMPS) may finance, have often disappointed.  Reviewing this history, Peter Bradford, a former US Nuclear Regulatory Commissioner and former a chairman of the New York and Maine utility regulatory commissions, will spotlight the risks of small public utilities' involvement in nuclear plant construction and precautions available to protect customers from  unanticipated costs.
