Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station is a nuclear power plant that generates 680MW of electricity for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the New England electric grid.
The power it generates represents about 17% of Massachusetts’ in-state power production. The plant generates enough power for more than 600,000 homes. The power is generated in a nuclear reactor in which water is heated by a process called nuclear fission.
