Last updated November 3, 2023
Nuclear energy remains a major power source in the U.S. Nuclear power accounts for 16.5% of the total electricity generated in the country, according to the November Nuclear Energy Report. This report is based on the latest U.S. Energy Information Administration data, which shows nuclear generation by state from August 2023.
Which state generates the largest amount of energy from nuclear sources? The EIA’s most recent data shows that in August, it was Illinois, with 8,552 thousand megawatt-hours. Alaska, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming did not generate a significant amount of nuclear energy in August, so they will not be included in the findings below.
