Why TVA Is Completing Watts Bar 2

Got a minute (and 22 seconds)? Catch a quick update on the first new commercial nuclear energy in the United States of the 21st century—in Tennessee.

Mike Skaggs, the Tennessee Valley Authority’s senior vice president for Watts Bar Operations  and Construction, explains how and why Watts Bar Unit 2 will be completed. Watts Bar-2 is scheduled to come online at the end of 2015, and will make nuclear energy a full 40 percent of TVA’s electrical generation. (Much more on Watts Bar-2 here, and more Watts Bar videos at ANS Nuclear Cafe here.)
