Nuclear Matinee: Economic Benefits from Seabrook Station

A nuclear power station contributes a lot more in benefits to a community and region than just massive amounts of 24/7 electricity generation—although it should be noted that, in the case of Seabrook Station alone, 42 percent of New Hampshire’s entire electricity generation comes from this single power plant. Amazing. See this excellent post at NEI Nuclear Notes for more on Seabrook’s “bigger picture,” and this story for more on regional economic benefits in particular.

    Good info!
    Re: “42 percent of New Hampshire’s entire electricity generation comes from this single power plant.”

    I hope the majority of Hamps aren’t clueless as Vermonters were in their situation and are aware of this remarkable figure and just how much cleaniless and non-scenic blight they’re getting away with by having that plant. This is another good vital reason that nuclear plants should publicize themselves to the hilt in the media and be as available to public visits and tours as zoos are — especially in weather like now.

    Keep up the good work!
