SRP to Host St. Johns Community Update regarding Coronado Generating Station Repurposing
As part of its efforts to review opportunities to utilize the existing infrastructure associated with the Coronado Generating Station (CGS), SRP commissioned a repurposing study from Kiewit to identify low- and zero-carbon technologies mature enough to be implemented at the CGS site by Spring 2033.
SRP is also reviewing the findings of a separate study from Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN), a U.S. Department of Energy initiative, on the feasibility of advanced nuclear generation at the CGS site.
SRP will host a community event in St. Johns to provide an update on the results of these studies.
The event will include presentations from SRP and GAIN, then provide open-house style informational stations for community members to review.
