Turkey Point Power Plant Built on 12, 700 acres in Homestead Opened in 1972 Cost to build both reactors $235,000, Employs 680 workers

3
Nuclear Energy Fission releases the energy Radiation is a product of this energy release Three types of radiation are Alpha, Beta and Gamma We are exposed to about 360 mRems of radiation annually
