Vermont Seeks Delay In Nuclear Plant Sale Hearings

Jan 12, 2018

Several Vermont state agencies are seeking to delay hearings this month on the proposed sale of the closed Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.

State agencies have asked the Public Utility Commission to postpone hearings scheduled for this month so they can review NorthStar Group's updated financial offer to Entergy, owner of Vermont Yankee.

Vermont Yankee closed in 2014 after operating for 42 years. The Rutland Herald reports NorthStar promises to demolish the reactor and restore the site by 2030.
