Pennsylvania’s Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant Shuts Down – Dangerous Decommission Ahead

The final shutdown of Three Mile Island, where 1979’s terrifying partial meltdown became a landmark event in the life cycle of nuclear power in the United States, has been shut down.

Exelon Corp. officials said the plant stopped producing electricity around noon Friday, following through on a decision the Chicago-based energy giant made in May after it became clear that it would not get a financial rescue from Pennsylvania.

The familiar vapor plume from the cooling towers has stopped. I have a good view of the facility from my home.
