NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants 2 shut Indian Point down when Entergy’s operating licenses leases 4 the nuclear power plant’s 2 reactors expire in 2013 & 2015
Deepwater Wind has proposed building Hudson Canyon, a 1,000-MW offshore wind farm in Atlantic waters south of New York City. The clean, renewable electricity produced would go a good way toward replacing the possible loss of power supply from the 2,065-MW Indian Point nuclear power plant in the Hudson River Valley, Reuters notes.
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to shut Indian Point down when Entergy’s operating licenses leases for the nuclear power plant’s two reactors expire in 2013 and 2015. Entergy, for its part, is seeking new operating licenses from federal nuclear regulators that will keep the plant running for another 20 years.
