##### Reference no: EM13706605

The electricity consumption in the USA in 2009 was about 44% of the total energy consumption. Of that about 20% was produced by Nuclear Power Plants. Currently there are 104 Nuclear Power Plants operating in the country. What is the average capacity of each of these plants in megawatts. If each reactor unit in the power plant has a capacity of 1000MW, how many such units, on an average, in each Plant?
