Nuclear power plants in the United States are typically granted a 40-year license to operate; this license includes an amortization period. A plant may be granted a 20-year license extension, provided the utility can show a commitment to (1) manage the plant properly and (2) ensure that all equipment is functioning well. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is the government agency responsible for licensing and regulating the operation of nuclear power plants.
