Nuclear Power Could Heat Your Home

Rising energy costs make winter expensive. The price of heating oil in New England rose from $3 a gallon to $5 last winter, with a possibility of $6 this year in some areas as the war in Ukraine disrupts energy markets. Natural gas prices could more than double heating bills this winter. Nuclear power offers a solution.

Nuclear power plants heat water and produce steam that drives turbine generators. The turbines convert about a third of the steam’s heat into electricity. The other two-thirds are wasted and usually absorbed by flowing river or sea water or cooling towers.
