However, it would be premature to say that this development is just around the corner. Much remains to be done before there can be much commercial progress in this area. Atomic power, as we now understand it, can produce electricity only by (.lie production of heat. The heat generated by nuclear fission must be transferred to a boiler for the generation of steam, which, in turn, will operate a conventional type* of steam turbine, driving a generator for the production of electricity. This new source nf heat encr- py is extremely important, because, if this country is to continue expanding its electric consumption, we must face the eventual depletion of our store of conventional fuel, such as coal, gas, and oil. The cost of building and operating an atomic power plant, based on today's knowledge, is ureater than that for a conventional plant. Nevertheless, the electrical industry is going ahead with the construction of several experimental plants using different type reactors. Vl'hilc the operatinn costs of such experimental plants will be higher, it is hoped that the knowledge gained from such developments will eventually* result in greater economy. The Company and other of American's investor- owned electric light and power companies are willing to take this risk, because they know the importance of guaranteeing the future ot our country's power supply. This is vital to the future of our nation. IOWA
