Vermont Yankee is now off line.

The news today in the Boston Globe is that Vermont Yankee is shutting down.  The report from NRC today, 12/29/14 is that plant is generating 74% of its power.  So the plant is still running.   I will watch this numbers periodically to determine when it is actually off line.

Today, 12/30/14 the plant is at 0% capacity according to the NRC Website.

    Vermont Yankee powered down for the last time at 12:12 pm on December 29. According to George Harvey, it will stay on the NRC’s list of active reactors until Entergy formally notifies the NRC that it has given up the license, a process that typically takes years.
