    Long Island's Nuke Plant

    Lipa tells you to conserve electric use,and now they want a rate hike.they still are billing customers on the shutdown of the plant in 89' that is owed at $3.3 billion dollars to date.....and they are now buying Oswego Nuke generated electric from upstate New York plant.hope the protesters who shut it down enjoy paying that bill.to all those National Grid customers with gas bills watch those meter readings numbers......they are adding to the readings with estimated billing. 800 acres and they can't figure out what to do with it.....indoor mall...gas powered generating plant with gas line from CT...movie theaters....touriest attraction

    From what i understand that plant could be turned on if we have oil issues.

    I do not understand what the fuss was about. It was run at low power for a few months then shut down.

    But turning it on would make too much sense.

    I never understood why it was not turned on. I believe the lobby against the nuke plant overwhelmed common sense. Nukes have been very safe and this plant i believe to be the newest in the counry.

    You can see it from CT.

    National Grid bought up Keyspan and all those out of date plants to produce electric that need upgrades bigtime.i always wondered how they snuck that fuel out of the plant,and off the Island.maybe on a barg in the Sound ,and to the Indian Point plant up on the Hudson?

    When 3 mile island was in trouble(getting ready to go critical), they didn't evacuate the area.

    By the time they would sound an evacuation alarm, till the time a plant blew up, they're wouldn't be enough time for people to get a safe distance.
