AFTER INDIAN POINT
With the retirement of Indian Point Energy Center, we enter a new phase that will be directed by one of the world’s leading decommissioning specialists – Holtec Decommissioning International.
The nuclear power plants at Indian Point have powered New York City and Westchester County for nearly 60 years. Now, after an agreement with the state of New York, Indian Point will stop generating electricity and permanently shut down by April 2021.
After shutdown, the site will enter decommissioning, a federally-regulated process that will ultimately return the land to a new productive use. Entergy has taken the first step by selecting a leading decommissioning company as our partner, Holtec International.
Holtec plans to initiate decommissioning at Indian Point promptly following regulatory approvals and transaction close, and it expects to complete major decommissioning activities and release the site (with the exception of the ISFSI) for re-use by the 2030s, as much as 40 years sooner than if Entergy continued to own the facility.
