  • Expanding existing state Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) into Low-Carbon Portfolio Standards (LCPS) would more than double the statutory requirements for clean energy in the United States. Such a policy shift would prevent the premature closing of many of America’s nuclear power plants and assure that nuclear power plants will be replaced with low-carbon electrical generation when they are retired.

    In aggregate, the existing RPSs require a total of 420 terawatt-hours of annual renewable generation across 30 states and Washington, DC by 2030. If nuclear were included in new low-carbon standards in all states that currently have both RPS policies and operating nuclear plants, the mandated amount of clean energy would increase to 940 terawatt-hours of annual carbon-free electricity. Assuring these additional 520 terrawatt-hours of electricity remain low-carbon would prevent 320 million metric tons or carbon dioxide emissions, or 17% lower than would otherwise be the case.
