ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the production trends of nuclear power in the U.S. According to the World Association of Nuclear Operators (WANO), great levels of safety and efficiency were maintained by the power plants in 2005. 19.4 percent of electricity in the U.S. is produced by nuclear power. Even with more than 40 percent of the nuclear reactors being shut down, U.S. nuclear power plants produced more than 783 billion kWh. Atlanta, Georgia-based Institute of Nuclear Power Operations analyzes the data compiled by WANO, to set benchmarks to measure plant safety and operations.
