New study shows power alternatives should Indian Point close

Posted: Updated:

Flanked by energy experts, Congresswoman Nita Lowey (R-Katonah) talked about viable power alternatives Tuesday in the event Indian Nuclear Power Plant closes.

Information of a three-year study conducted by the National Academy of Sciences was revealed at a press conference at Pace University in White Plains. Lowey says the study shows there are feasible ways to get power without Indian Point. The units at the plant could be retired at the end of their operating license without causing a major disruption of power to the area.

Lowey says the study demonstrates a power replacement strategy without dramatic price increases. Entergy?s Jim Steets says the study just illustrates the obstacles of closing Indian Point.
