When you flip on a light switch, turn on your TV, start up your coffee maker, or charge your cell phone, there’s a good chance that the energy you’re using to get the job done has been generated by nuclear power. Yet this misunderstood power source is vastly underutilized in America.
In a new documentary by The Heritage Foundation called “Powering America,” we examine how nuclear energy is used in the United States and take a look at the big questions. Is nuclear energy safe? Can it help to meet our future energy needs? “Powering America” answers these questions and more by pulling back the veil on nuclear energy and follows the men and women who work in America’s nuclear power industry.
