Duke Energy (DUK) said it will retire its idled 35 year old Crystal River nuclear plant in Florida, closed since 2009, resolving a problem that was part of a boardroom fight, reports the Wall Street Journal. The company said it is likely to ask state regulators for permission to replace Crystal River with a comparably sized gas-fired power plant.
