Small nuke reactors: Search for site is planned

The Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council will begin searching for potential sites to  locate small modular reactors.

That information came from a recent Energy Northwest blog entry. Energy Northwest is lined up to operate small modular reactors courts under a Northwest venture allied with the federal Department of Energy. The most likely manufacturing site is a half-built reactor located just north of Richland and near Energy Northwest’s sole existing reactor.
