More About Our Plants

Environmental Stewardship

The protection of our natural environment is among our highest priorities. Each facility is surrounded by thousands of acres of plants, wildlife and native plants. We are committed to being good stewards of our surroundings so that essential habitat components are maintained, and species can thrive.  Each plant in the Southern Nuclear fleet has been certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council as a wildlife habitat. The council is a non-profit international organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing wildlife habitats.

Carbon-Free Energy For Our Net-Zero Future

Nuclear energy facilities provide 77% of Alabama's carbon-free electricity and 88% of Georgia's.

Proven Reliability

Southern Nuclear operated facilities maintained an average three-year fleet capacity factor of 94% from 2016-2019. 

Efficient Technology

One uranium fuel pellet is about the size of a pencil eraser and creates as much energy as one ton of coal, 149 gallons of oil or 17,000 cubic feet of natural gas. Each nuclear reactor is fueled with over 14 million fuel pellets and is designed to operate continuously for up to two years without refueling.
