Rally to close Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant September 2

protestFlag-USAPLYMOUTH, Mass. (WWLP) 1 Sept 13 – There’s a renewed push to force the closure of the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth.

This is after the recent announcement that the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Plant will be shutting down.

Both plants are owned by the same company.

Protesters are planning a rally near the Sagamore Bridge on Cape Cod tomorrow.

They say vacationers and Cape Cod resident could be trapped if there was ever a serious nuclear accident at the plant.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission voted last year to relicense Pilgrim through 2032.

The plant’s operators say the facility produces 10 percent of the state’s electrical needs.
