IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An investment group is pitching a plan to build a commercial nuclear power plant in southeastern Idaho near the Idaho National Laboratory research facility.

The Post Register reports  that Twin Buttes Enterprises LLC presented its plan to the Butte County Commission on Monday.

Twin Buttes was approved for a certificate of organization by the Idaho Secretary of State on Nov. 21.

Bob Skinner is a former INL executive with Twin Buttes and says the group plans to start contacting potential nuclear plant developers next year.

Butte County Commission Chairman Seth Beal said Monday was the first time he heard about the nuclear plant plan.

He says the county is comfortable with nuclear power because of the INL. But he says it’s too early to evaluate the Twin Buttes plan
