License Renewal Alert

We've gotten word that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will announce the issuance of a license renewal for two nuclear reactors sometime today. Stand by for more.

UPDATE: The lucky plant is Nine Mile Point, near Oswego, N.Y. The NRC has approved the renewal of operating licenses at Constellation's two reactors here for an additional 20 years. That means Nine Mile Point 1 will operate until 2029, and Nine Mile Point 2 until 2046. Constellation submitted its application in May 2004.

With renewal of the Nine Mile Point reactors, the total number of reactors with renewed licenses is now 46. For more details, click here.

The NRC release is not available on its Web site yet. When it is available, you can find it here. And of course, we'll update this post to link to the release itself as soon as we can. In the meantime, Constellation has issued a release as well.
