Trump said in a written memorandum he did not concur with a U.S. Commerce Department investigation that found uranium imports threaten to impair U.S. national security. Trump wrote that while findings "raise significant concerns" he was ordering a deeper review.

PLYMOUTH, Mass., June 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Control room operators at Entergy's Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, located in Plymouth, Massachusetts, shut down its reactor for the final time on Friday, at 5:28 p.m. The decision to shut down Pilgrim was the result of a number of financial factors, including low wholesale energy prices. "The difficult but necessary decision to close Pilgrim impacted our dedicated employees and their families, and was a decision we did not make lightly," said Entergy Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Leo Denault. The closure of Pilgrim is another important milestone in Entergy's exit of the merchant power business, as the company transitions to a pure-play utility business.
MONTZ, La., May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Entergy Louisiana is pleased to announce that the St. Charles Power Station commenced commercial operation on May 23. The 980-megawatt power station is one of the cleanest natural gas-powered plants in Entergy Louisiana's fleet. Combined-cycle gas turbine units like the St. Charles facility emit on average about 40% less carbon dioxide than Entergy's older natural gas-powered units.
Workers simulated the shutdown on Tuesday of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, just days before the plant will stop producing energy after 47 years of operation. On Friday, a team of workers will begin the process of reducing the plant's power output from the current 40% of its capacity to zero. During the simulation, workers at the plant in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts, traded commands about which knobs to turn and buttons to press to safely shut down the reactor as alarms sounded and lights flashed.
