There are 104 nuclear power plants generating electricity in the USA. Constructions permits for another 40 are in the application process. Electrical energy was first produced in the 1950's at Shippingport, PA.

Spent fuel storage is a political problem - not a technical problem.
Nuclear power is the only viable energy source for the future.
