NRC License Renewals for nuclear energy sites.
Nuclear energy plants in the United States are licensed to operate for 40 years. The 40-year term is based on the amortization period used by electric utility companies for capital investments; it’s not based on safety, technical or environmental issues. The Atomic Energy Act of 1954 permits nuclear plants to renew their operating licenses.

Preserving our virtually emissions-free generating capacity and electrical output is important for the nation’s environmental goals, and life in local communities. FERC licenses are typically issued for a period of 30 to 50 years.
