Title: Nuclear Energy Information Service Q&A
Date: December 1, 2012
Nuclear Expert Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education: The Kewaunee plant in Wisconsin, it’s a 600 megawatt plant, a single unit plant and the owner of the plant has decided that it makes no economic sense to run it so they’ll be shutting down. [...]
The dominoes are starting to fall, small single unit reactors like Oyster Creek, Vermont Yankee and others. The commercials pressures on them to keep them running, especially in light of Fukushima modifications, I don’t think Kewaunee will be the only plant to shut down. I think we’ll see quite a few.
