TWO RIVERS, Wis. (AP) — Two advocacy groups have filed their opposition to expanding the Point Beach nuclear power plant.
NextEra Energy Resources wants to expand Point Beach to generate 17 percent more power. Opponents say the NRC is relying on outdated information about the plant and its importance to the state’s power grid.
According to the Journal Sentinel, American Transmission Co. has proposed a $173 million upgrade of the transmission line network in the Manitowoc County area to accommodate the Point Beach upgrade.
