Abstract

Impacts resulting from building and operating 12 nuclear generating stations in the US were not generally characteristic of impacts associated with resource-based energy developments. Economic benefits to local areas were not large due to significant commutation levels, income leakage from the rural areas, and relatively few local purchases of construction material. Revenue impacts from nuclear plants have shown important gains to local jurisdictions. Nevertheless, revenue impacts were found to be wide ranging, depending on state utility tax structures.-from Authors
