Take Action: Nuclear Powers America Act

Nov 08, 2019

Tell Congress to support the bipartisan Nuclear Powers America Act (H.R. 2314/S. 1134).

This legislation will help NECA contractors by extending the ITC to include nuclear work by creating a 30 percent tax credit for refueling costs and qualified nuclear power plant capital expenditures for each taxable year through 2023. Thereafter, the credit rate would be reduced until it reached 10 percent in 2026. Nuclear power accounts for 20% of the nation’s electrical supply, produces more than 60% of the emissions-free generation in America, supporting 475,000 jobs.
