Uprate Xcel Energy’s Prairie Island Nuclear Generating Plant?  I think not…

Today was the deadline for filing comments to Xcel Energy’s Changed Circumstances Petition.  Here it is:

One Response to “Uprate for Prairie Island Nuclear Plant?”

  1. Alan Muller Says:

    The PUC should, as was apparent at the time, NOT have approved the uprate. Perhaps a lot of blame should fall on the Department of Commerce, a reliable rubber stamp for applicants. Now, will the PUC learn any lesson from this, about not being lead around by the nose by Xcel and other utilities?
