More information on reactors two and three needed

Just a quick note about reactors two and three. Both of these reactors were taken offline for a while (several years) around 1985(?). There was a lot of work done on them and a lot of money spent before they came back online in the 90s. I remember visiting one of the construction sites while under the impression that it was a brand new nuclear facility. From the looks of the construction site it could well have been a brand new reactor. I don't know what changes were made to the reactors or what the objectives of shutting them down and upgrading them were, but it would be nice to have that information in this article.


Earlier this week the NRC approved Unit 1 to be restarted. http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/news/2007/07-032.ii.html --140.180.149.98 03:25, 20 May 2007 (UTC)


Note that the section on reactor 3 specifies a number of megawatt-hours, but not the time period measured. Based on the numbers for reactor 2, the 9,260,078 megawatt-hours is about a year's worth, rather than over the life of the reactor. 205.254.147.8 (talk) 15:31, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
