Nuclear

Local communities and leaders support additional nuclear-related development at the available sites near URENCO, USA, International Isotopes INC., Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, and Waste Control Specialists within the EnergyPlex’s emerging nuclear cluster.

The EnergyPlex has a proven record of obtaining licensure and offers the essential conditions to achieve Nuclear Regulatory Commission Licensure and state permitting for nuclear-related facilities.

Lea County supports new development in the nuclear industry and offers industrial revenue bonds to provide tax relief for qualified nuclear-related projects.

“We have received overwhelming support from community leaders and residents of the EnergyPlex for our proposed deconversion and fluorine gas-extraction plant.”
