Nuclear Experts Available to Discuss Vermont Yankee’s Potential Sale
November 4, 2010
SOUTH ROYALTON, VT -- Vermont Law School's Institute for Energy and the Environment has several experts available to discuss the implications of the potential sale of the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.
Entergy Corp. said Thursday it's considering the sale of the nuclear plant, a 605-megawatt generating station in Vernon, Vt. The Vermont Legislature in February voted to block a state permit for the 20-year federal license extension sought by Vermont Yankee. The vote followed a January announcement that tritium, a cancer-causing isotope produced by nuclear plants, had been leaking into soil and groundwater around the plant along the Connecticut River.
