This template is intended to be inserted as a footer at the bottom of every article relating to any of the plants listed above, or to the NRC main page or any other place where appropriate, to serve as an easy navigation tool for anyone interested in the details about U.S. nuclear power plants. If there are other unlisted plants, found to be existing or seriously proposed, they should be added to the list, in alphabetical order by the displayed name. The practice for this list has been, where a plant is named after a person, the displayed name is the last name of the person. Where the plant is named after a place or its corporate owner, the displayed name is all of the name excluding the phrase defining the type of facility, e.g. "Nuclear Power Station", "Nuclear Generating Station" etc. Thus, Donald C. Cook Nuclear Generating Station is listed as Cook, Indian Point Energy Center is listed as Indian Point. Davis-Besse has two names, so it gets both names displayed. However, if a plant ever becomes extremely well known by its whole name, code that for the display name.

There are no parameters to pass to this macro.

Why did this template have no mention to the actual reactors under construction? Instead it dubiously suggested that Bellefonte Nuclear Generating Station was the "future"? There are two reactors right now being built at Vogtle Electric Generating Plant and another two at Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Generating Station. I have included these and rectified this bizarre cherry picking of the presentation of "future" reactors. Regards.
