Seeking SMRs.

Dominion Energy publicly announced it is seeking proposals to build SMRs, small modular nuclear reactors, at an event on Wednesday at North Anna Power Station, E&E News reported.

Virginia is home to a collection of data centers, which draw a lot of energy. Growing demand for electricity is opening a new door for nuclear. Whether the industry can deliver remains to be seen.
