Summary

The bill requires the director of the office of economic

development (office) or the director's designee to conduct or cause to be
conducted a study (feasibility study) regarding the feasibility of using
small modular nuclear reactors as a carbon-free energy source for the
state and includes specific items that must be included in the feasibility
study.
By July 1, 2024, the director of the office is required to provide a
written report to the committees of the senate and house of
representatives having jurisdiction over energy matters regarding the
findings and conclusions from the feasibility study. The bill appropriates
$500,000 from the general fund to the office for the 2022-23 fiscal year
to be used for the purposes of the feasibility study.
In addition, current law defines recycled energy as energy
produced by a generation unit with a nameplate capacity of not more than
15 megawatts. For pumped hydroelectricity generation only, the bill
specifies that the energy be produced by a generation unit with a
nameplate capacity of not more than 400 megawatts.
