Coal miner Colt Quintard plays pool at a local bar Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022, in Kemmerer, Wyo. Quintard said he isn't as convinced as others the nuclear plant will be as big a boon to the community. He fears many of the full-time workers will come from out of town due to the training needed and others will live in larger cities and commute. "I don't think this community is going to benefit from it the way a lot people think it's going to," said Quintard, who was raised in a nearby town of Big Piney. "Change is going to happen, regardless. There is nothing we can do." (AP Photo/Natalie Behring)

Crystal Bowen, a generation clerk at the Naughton Power Plant, arrives at the plant Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022, in Kemmerer, Wyo. Bowen is hopeful about Kemmerer being chosen as the site of a nuclear reactor when the coal-fired power plant she works at is decommissioned in 2025, saying the plant should allow her and others with Rocky Mountain Power to shift to jobs at the new plant. "I don't know if Kemmerer would have survived if we lost the power plant and the coal mine. It may have just turned into a ghost town," said Bowen. (AP Photo/Natalie Behring)
