VY completes another decommissioning milestone

As a former employee at Vermont Yankee, I take great interest in hearing the updates on the decommissioning status of the facility. Last week’s news announcement that Vermont Yankee’s spent fuel has been completely transferred from the spent-fuel pool into dry-cask storage is excellent news for the plant community and Vermont Yankee’s future.

Vermont Yankee has completed another key milestone toward decommissioning and has done so within budget and well ahead of schedule.

I’m hopeful that the sale is approved and that Vernon can benefit from a restored site and new economic opportunities within the near future.
