Indian Point Reactor Shuts Down During Sandy

Unit 3 should be operational again in two to three days.

Buchanan, NY—A disruption in the electrical grid caused Indian Point Energy Center's Unit 3 nuclear power plant to shut down Monday night.

The plant shut down just before 10:45 p.m. No radiation was released and there was no threat to the safety of workers or the public.

Indian Point's other reactor, Unit 2, is at full power and has been running continuosly for 146 days. Unit 3 had been online for 201 days prior to last night's shut down.

"Our electrical generator sends power out to the grid and the connection, somewhere in the grid, was lost and we had nowhere to send our power," said Jerri Nappi, a spokesman for the nuclear power plant. "If our generator can't get power out to the grid, it's designed to shut itself down automatically to protect itself from electrical damae."

Nappi said Unit 3 should be back online in two to three days.

Indian Point's two operating nuclear powerplants generate roughly 2,000 megawatts of electricity for homes, business and public facilities in New York City and Westchester County.

Maybe they should do us all a favor and leave it off.

they have begun trying to lower http://www.coachoutletmls.com expectations.Consolidated Edison, for example, tucked an especially http://www.hemesbelscq.com dire note into a news release on Thursday afternoon. It said the http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com “vast majority” of its customers in New York City http://www.coachoutletonlinehl.net and the northern suburbs should have power by Nov. 11, http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org but a significant number could remain in the dark for http://www.coachoutletuso.net a week or more beyond that.John Miksad, the company’s senior http://www.coachfactorystorebg.org vice president for electric operations, said some “stragglers http://www.coachoutletonlinetb.com ” might not get electricity again until the middle of this http://www.coachoutlethcs.com month. Those living through the worst-case situation may http://www.coachoutletb1.com account for just a few percent of the 850,000 Con Edison http://www.coachoutletdi.org customers who lost power,
