The Pathfinder Nuclear Generating Station was an early commercial and demonstration plant near Sioux Falls that generated up to 59 MW of grid-connected electricity for brief periods during years 1966-1967.[4] The single BWR reactor was decommissioned in 1967, the facility converted to use oil & gas in 1968, and ultimately retired in the early 2000’s. The reactor and other nuclear components were removed in 1990.[5] South Dakota had no utility-scale plants that used fissile material as a fuel in 2019.[1]
