UUSA urges support of the Next Generation Energy Plan

25 May 2016

UUSA recently wrote to Illinois lawmakers urging their support for the Next Generation Energy Plan. UUSA is extremely interested in this issue because our business is to supply nuclear fuel – and we supply fuel to every U.S. nuclear power company. We know that when nuclear generation plants are closed, the communities that host them suffer significant economic damages and hundreds of jobs are lost. Suppliers and their communities lose out as well. While the UUSA facility is in New Mexico, we rely on Illinois businesses to not only buy our product, but also to supply our raw material. The bulk of that raw material comes from Metropolis, in southern Illinois.

The support of the Next Generation Energy Plan not only ensures that all of Illinois enjoys clean and reliable energy, it also strengthens and preserves jobs throughout Illinois, New Mexico, and the USA.
