Entergy: Decision To Close FitzPatrick Could Come By December

SCRIBA – Entergy officials said they will decide by the end of the year whether to close the James FitzPatrick nuclear plant in Scriba.

The company’s CEO reportedly told stockholders Entergy may decide not perform the 2016 refueling outage at the plant; closing down FitzPatrick would be the alternative.

Barclay Reacts to Entergy’s Stockholder Report

Entergy submitted a report to its stockholders today (Sept. 11), which outlined the company’s intentions, details on wholesale energy pricing, and regulatory environment.

The report indicated a decision to refuel Fitzpatrick has not been made and will be determined later this year.

“I understand that this is a challenging time because of the fluctuating energy market.  I am working with state regulators, Entergy, and local officials on what we can do to keep Entergy operating in Oswego County,” Barclay said.
