Located on Hutchinson Island about eight miles southeast of Ft. Pierce, the St. Lucie Nuclear Plant has been powering more than a million homes in south Florida for more than 45 years.
We provide hundreds of quality jobs for the community and contribute hundreds of millions of dollars to the local economy each year.
We protect sea turtles year-round and assist research institutions. We also conduct turtle walks to increase awareness of sea turtle conservation efforts.
Although St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant has safely operated since 1970, extraordinary precautions are taken to ensure the safety of the public and plant workers in the unlikely event of an emergency at the plant.
