About Company

The Cook Nuclear Plant is located on 650 acres along Lake Michigan's eastern shoreline. The tract is part of the world's largest formation of fresh water dunes. The plant is owned and operated by American Electric Power.  The construction permit for the plant was granted by the Atomic Energy Commission in 1969. The plant was named for the late Donald C. Cook, a Michigan native, and former chairman of the board of AEP. Unit 1 began commercial operation in August of 1975, and Unit 2 in July of 1978. Construction cost for both units was 1.3 billion dollars.  With both Cook units at full power, more than 2,100 megawatts of electricity are generated – enough for more than 1.5 million homes. Cook has 1,200 employees and a payroll of more than $100 million. AEP pays more than $35 million in taxes, making it by far the largest taxpayer in the county. Cook enjoys great support in the local community, and returns that support through numerous contributions to community agencies.  Nuclear energy is by far the most reliable source of electricity that doesn’t emit any air pollution, producing electricity 24/7 for 18 months before briefly shutting down to refuel. Nuclear energy has a major role in protecting America’s air quality, suppling nearly 20 percent of America’s electricity. It’s a secure source that isn’t subject to changing weather conditions, unpredictable fuel cost fluctuations or over-dependence on foreign suppliers. Energy diversity helps balance the benefits, risks and costs associated with producing electricity. Nuclear energy plays a vital role in America’s diverse electricity portfolio.
