Pilgrim License Officially Renewed

The NRC gave Entergy a new license to operate Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station for another 20 years today, when the members of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission put their signatures to a 16-page letter to ichaei A. Balduzzi, Entergy's Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the New England Region.

Entergy received approval last week after six years of studies and despite opposition from local groups, and concerns from Plymouth's delegation in the State House, the governor, secretary of state and Massahusetts senators and congressmen.

The full letter is attached.
