Port Gibson, Miss., Supports New Nuclear Energy Plant at Grand Gulf

The Port Gibson Mayor and Board of Alderman believes that the generation of nuclear energy is a safe, low-cost, emission-free energy source for use by the American public and that nuclear energy has no air emissions and therefore helps to maintain a clean air environment for all of Claiborne County as well as the nation as a whole. The Port Gibson Mayor and Board of Alderman supports the efforts of Systems Energy Resources, Inc. and Entergy to construct a second nuclear reactor at Grand Gulf Nuclear Station in Claiborne County, Mississippi. The Port Gibson Mayor and Board of Alderman recognize the fact that by increasing nuclear power generation will require designing and building new plants as well as operating the new facilities, which together will create thousands of new jobs to the area.
