Wyoming has been selected as the site of a new nuclear power plant.

The state will house the first Natrium Reactor in a partnership with Bill Gates’ TerraPower company, PacifiCorp and the U.S. Department of Energy, Gov. Mark Gordon announced Wednesday.

“Wyoming has been a leader in energy for over a century,” Gates said remotely at a news conference from the state Capitol, “and we hope our investment in Natrium will allow Wyoming to stay in the lead for many decades to come.”
