Tim Judson, Executive Director of Nuclear Information and Resource Service, sent the following note out re: an E&E article:
Entergy is sending signals to the investment community that it may be preparing to phase out its merchant nuclear business. When pressed on what that really means – particularly for Indian Point [in New York] – they muttered the same, increasingly hollow, talking points about relicensing, reliability, emissions, etc. But the suggestion from the analysts in the audience that negotiating a deal to close Indian Point should be on the table. That would imply closing Palisades [in Michigan], too.
