Hi Ed,

This usually refers to Brown's Ferry Unit 1.  It has an OL but has been shutdiwn since 1985.  This is why we see reports of 104 operating licences but 103 operating plants.  

TVA has had a $1.8 Billion rebuilding project.  This includes a 5% power uprate, from 1100 to 1155 MWe.  Fuel loading should be complete. The schedule was to start up in May.

Regards, Jim

I keep running across mentions of one nuclear plant being under construction
in the U.S.   Does anyone know if this is Watts Bar 2 that was started in
the early 70s but construction stopped in the mid 80s, then supposedly
restarted later?  If so, any idea of when it might come on line?
