At the direction of the Board of Public Utilities, DPU is exploring whether to add a next-generation nuclear power facility to the County's energy generation portfolio to meet a 2040 goal to be carbon neutral.  Through its membership with UAMPS (Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems), DPU is specifically looking at the Carbon-Free Power Project that will utilize small modular reactor technology developed by NuScale Power.Idaho National Laboratory is the where the CFPP will be located. 

On March 21, 2018 the Board of Public Utilities and on April 3, 2018 the County Council will need to make a decision - should the county continue its participation into the next phase of the CFPP.  Read the write up on Open Forum and provide your feedback.
