US Nuclear Regulatory Commission approves Holtec nuclear storage for SE New Mexico

After a few years of back and forth through the regulatory process, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved Holtec International’s plans to store spent nuclear fuel in far-southeast New Mexico.

The Rio Grande Foundation provided public comments in support of this effort and commented in various news outlets on the issue. Nuclear MUST be among the solutions for our energy needs. It is zero carbon and “green.” New Mexico can again be part of the solution and we welcome the jobs and economic growth this facility will provide.
