Vermont is preparing to do battle with Vermont Yankee and Entergy
Vt. ready for legal action by Yankee
By BOB AUDETTE / Reformer Staff

Friday April 8, 2011

BRATTLEBORO -- If Entergy continues to operate Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant past March 21, 2012, the state will be ready to enforce its laws.

"We are not going to sit on our hands and let Vermont law be ignored," said Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell in a telephone interview with the Reformer.

Sorrell said he and his staff have already met a number of times to prepare for whatever legal action might be necessary if Entergy, which owns and operates the plant, ignores the states refusal to issue a certificate of public good for continued operation of Yankee.

"We are prepared for any eventuality," he said.

1. This will be interesting.
I wonder if Entergy can keep running while tying things up in court for years.

3. Given that position, without Yankee, does VT have adequate power generation capacity?
