AP makes corrections to story on Entergy Nuclear

In a story Jan. 13 about the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant, The Associated Press reported erroneously how much power the plant supplies to Vermont.

The plant currently supplies a small fraction of Vermont’s power, not a third, as it used to before a contract expired last March.

The story also erroneously reported when the plant’s state certificate to operate expired. It expired March 21, 2012; it is not expiring March 21, 2013.

  1. Wrong again, I think.
    Vermont Yankee is not supplying a small fraction of the power for Vermont.
    The contract with the State of Vermont was not renewed, and Vermont Yankee is not supplying any power to Vermont at all.
