Nuclear Power Plants in India

List of Nuclear Power Plants In India: The Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) established with Presidential Order on August 3, 1954, is the head of the department in the development of nuclear power technology, applications of radiation technologies in India

Nuclear Power is the 5th largest source of electricity after our conventional electrical production from Coal, Gas, Hydroelectricity, and wind power. Nuclear power is the use of nuclear reactions to generate a huge amount of heat which mostly used in steam turbines for the production of electricity in nuclear power generation. Nuclear fission of Uranium and Plutonium is used for producing Nuclear power. The total capacity of Nuclear Power in India as of March 2018 is 6,780, MegaWatt with 22 Nuclear reactors in 7 Nuclear Power plants across India
