The UNITED STATES is the world’s largest producer of nuclear power, accounting for about 30% of worldwide generation of nuclear electricity, followed by France, China, Japan, and Russia.

Scattered throughout the U.S. are 54 active nuclear power plants with 93 nuclear reactors in operation. The total energy generated from these plants is over 800 terawatts of zero-emissions electricity per year. The reactors operate at full power 92% of the time and generate about one-fifth of the country’s energy every year.

The following are the top 12-producing states of nuclear power: Illinois (54%), Pennsylvania (36%), South Carolina (56%), New York (34%), Alabama (31%), North Carolina (31%), Tennessee (44%), Virginia (30%), New Jersey (37%), Connecticut (42%), Maryland (38%), and New Hampshire (61%).

New Hampshire produces the highest share of its electricity from nuclear power at 61%, followed by South Carolina with 56% and Illinois with 54%.
