Statement by NIRS Executive Director Tim Judson on Entergy’s Announced Closure of Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant

WASHINGTON - “NIRS applauds Entergy’s decision to close the unsafe, uneconomical, and polluting Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant, on Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts. However, Entergy’s proposed 2019 closure date is unacceptable, and poses the risk that this dangerous reactor could continue operating for nearly four more years. Pilgrim currently has the worst nuclear safety rating in the country, tied with Entergy’s Arkansas Nuclear One plant.
