Palo verde nuclear power station is pretty cool.
It's the most powerful nuclear power plant in the US.
One of the newest in the country.
It's designed to run 100% recycled nuclear fuel.

The people in AZ are a lot smarter than the people in NH who voted to shut down NH Yankee nuclear power station in 2016 I believe and it's license was good through 2025.
The next year after the shutdown customers in NH, VT and ME complained their electrical bills nearly doubled.

The "Union oF concerned scientists" are now reluctantly pro nuclear.
A electrical/mechanical engineer must have joined them and drew it out on a chalkboard explaining how they are wrong and why their ideas excluding nuclear power are stupid and why they won't work.

I like how "climate change" is pushing everyone to nuclear power.
Total backfire. The believers want no oil, no coal, no natural gas, no nuclear. Hahaha.
