The Greene County Nuclear Power Plant was proposed in 1974 by the Power Authority of the State of New York. A single 1,212 MWe Babcock & Wilcox pressurized water reactor was to be built approximately 5 miles south of Catskill, New York on the western shore of the Hudson River,Coordinates: 42°09′00″N 73°54′41″W / 42.15000°N 73.91139°W / 42.15000; -73.91139[1] but the plant proposal was canceled in 1979, largely due to concerns over social and economic disruptions to the local communities.[2] [3]
