    May 20, 2022 - Targeted News Service

     

      LA CROSSE, Wisconsin, May 20 (TNStalk) -- The Dairyland Power Cooperative issued the following news release:

      Dairyland President & CEO Brent Ridge was interviewed by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Rick Barrett on Dairyland's exploration of NuScale Power's small-scale nuclear reactors. Dairyland is excited to learn more about this carbon-free nuclear power technology as a potential benefit to our members, employees and the communities where we do business.

      Background:

      In February 2022, Dairyland and NuScale Power announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to evaluate the potential deployment of NuScale's advanced nuclear technology.

      Under this MOU, the two parties will work together to explore NuScale's small modular reactor technology and support Dairyland's due diligence process in evaluating affordable, reliable and carbon-free energy solutions.

      In support of Dairyland's existing portfolio, NuScale's VOYGRTM power plants are flexible and able to perform load following maneuvers to meet grid capacity needs due to the intermittency of wind, solar, and hydro generation, facilitating the growth of renewables. Additionally, NuScale's technology is particularly well-suited for placement at retiring coal plant sites, preserving critical jobs in the energy industry and helping host communities facilitate the transition to a decarbonized energy system.

      "Dairyland is examining carbon-free power supply technologies including NuScale's small modular reactor nuclear plants," said Brent Ridge, Dairyland President and CEO. "This agreement provides Dairyland an opportunity to explore this technology and evaluate whether it might be a viable long-term alternative to provide our members with safe, reliable and cost-effective electricity in a lower carbon future."

      "NuScale is thrilled to partner with an environmentally-focused, forward-thinking organization like Dairyland," said John Hopkins, NuScale Power President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our advanced technology can deliver safe, affordable, and green energy making NuScale the ideal partner to help Dairyland execute their vision to grow, innovate, and deliver value as a premier member-driven energy cooperative."
