Anything that uses electricity is going to be using some nuclear, unless you are in an isolated place that runs its own electric system without national or regional connections. In the US nuclear is about 20 percent, and world-wide the average is about 16 percent, though of course many countries have no nuclear. But if you live in the US, Canada, or Europe you are certainly using some nuclear power (unless isolated as above). In Australia or New Zealand though, zero nuclear.
