Spano?s plan to get Indian Point to voluntarily shut down gets mixed reviews
A study commissioned by the county that determined it would be most cost effective if Indian Point shut down voluntarily is getting mixed reviews Wednesday.
Westchester County Executive Andy Spano is counting on being able to convince Entergy, the owner of Indian Point, that shutting down makes sense financially. If not, Spano says his last resort will be getting the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to reject a renewal of Indian Point?s license.
Many Yorktown residents don?t think Spano will succeed in getting the plant to voluntarily walk away. One possible alternative could be gas-fired plants near Indian Point. However, the Buchanan mayor says he will block any other use for that land.
