Progress Energy Seeks License Extension for Shearon Harris

Progress Energy has announced it submitted a license renewal application for the Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant. Good luck to the folks at Progress Energy and congratulations to the team that put together the application on reaching an important milestone.

Predictably, the shrill anti-nuke activist group NC WARN will be holding a press conference at the main gate of the plant at 5:00 p.m. U.S. ET today to express their displeasure over those plans. For more background on their activities, visit We Support Lee.

An article from the News-Observer briefly covers NC WARN and mentions anti-nuclear groups' opposition to relicensing in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Vermont. It mentions that "The opponents in those states include attorneys general and state environmental agencies." A strategy by anti-nuclear groups may be to lobby the North Carolina Attorney General or the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
