    EDF Energy has opened its new visitor centres at each of its nuclear power stations across the UK.

    The first visitor centre to open was at Hunterston B power station in Ayrshire, closely followed by Torness’s power station in East Lothian.

    The visitor centres are where you can find out more about EDF Energy’s nuclear power station operations, how we generate electricity and more about EDF Energy.

    Pre arranged site tours are also available – please give us at least two weeks’ notice. And please check our frequently asked questions about accessibility to our sites

    Groups will be able to come on site and explore electricity with us – seeing first hand how we use nuclear power to provide low carbon electricity for the UK.

    And all this is free…
