NuScale Power, LLC is slated to begin building a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) power plant at the INL site, which could hold up to 12 modules. Owned by the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) and operated by Energy Northwest, this plant will provide electricity and clean water to areas that typically rely on coal-based utilities. UAMPS is planning on commercial operation of the first NuScale Power Module at INL in 2026. More information about their SMRs and NuScale’s project can be found here.
