Pilgrim nuclear plant in Mass. gets its license extended
Posted by David Brooks | Friday, May 25, 2012
The Globe reports that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has extended the operating license for Pilgrim Nuclear Generating Station in Plymouth, Mass., just south of Boston.
The initial, 40-year operating license run outs June 8. The new license is good for 20 years. Here's the story.
The story notes that the the NRC "has never rejected a license renewal application of a nuclear plant." No wonder anti-nuke folks in Vermont are fighting so hard to keep state oversight on Vermont Yankee.
