  •  I wonder, will this be like Trojan in Oregon? (0+ / 0-)

    Many years ago in Oregon, there was a ballot measure to make a corporation shut down the Trojan Nuclear Reactor at its own expense.  Needless to say, the company fought it tooth and nail, and won, based on arguments about keeping power and jobs.  

    Then...the corporation almost immediately turned around and shut down the reactor anyway, but were therefore allowed to charge the costs to the ratepayers instead of profits.

    So, depending on the financial details of these arrangements, you could still see the backside of this reactor - especially if it is truly falling apart - but have to pay for the privilege.
