VERNON, Vt. (AP) — Vermont this month is holding its first public meeting on the proposed sale of the closed Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant.
Entergy Nuclear has submitted a request to sell the plant to demolition company NorthStar Group Services Inc.
The nuclear plant shut down in December 2014.
Vermont Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/2lhzPIv ) NorthStar wants to buy the plant, and its approximately $560 million decommissioning trust fund. The company plans to demolish the reactor and restore the site for other uses.
The hearing takes place March 14 at 7 p.m. at the Vernon Elementary School.
The state Department of Public Service will hold an informational session at the school an hour before the meeting.
