Nuke Plants Issues Still Alive

The owner of Ohio’s two nuclear plants is optimistic lawmakers will come up with their financial rescue, even though a deadline set by the company has passed. State leaders are considering adding a fee on every electricity bill in the state in order to stop the plants from closing prematurely. FirstEnergy Solutions has told lawmakers it needed to know by the end of June so that it could decide whether to begin spending millions on refueling its plant near Toledo. The company says it remains on track to close the plants by 2021, but it could change those plans, if lawmakers pass the legislation this month.
