(Host) Lawyers for the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant are expressing their concern to the state’s Public Service Board. In a letter sent today, Vermont Yankee’s lawyers point to the economic benefits for ratepayers if the deal with Entergy Nuclear moves forward. But the lawyers say it’s clear the sale won’t go through with a condition in place that Entergy Nuclear opposes.
The Public Service Board has rejected a request by Entergy Nuclear to drop the requirement that any extra money in the plant’s decommissioning fund be returned to ratepayers. The Board’s decision has left Entergy to decide whether it wants to proceed with the purchase of the plant. (AP)
