INDIAN POINT TO CLOSE
Entergy announced that it will close Units 2 and 3 at Indian Point Energy Center in 2020 and 2021. Unit 1, built by ConEdison and in operation from 1963, was closed in 1974. Entergy purchased the larger units 2 and 3 in 2001. In 2000 NRC rated unit 2 as the most trouble-plagued nuclear power plant in the country.
Entergy reported that the closure was due to increasing operating costs and low prices of natural gas, the result of the development of the Marcellus Shale Formation. There had been strong opposition from environmental groups and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo over concern with issues on the aging units such as radioactive releases, fish killed from intake of Hudson River water for cooling reactors and their proximity to New York City. New York State in its settlement has agreed to drop legal challenges to the plants’ license renewals for its remaining time.
