Three-Mile Island Decommission Cost Put at $918-Million
Officials say it will cost hundreds of millions of dollars to decommission a closed nuclear reactor and associated structures at the central Pennsylvania plant where what is considered the worst commercial nuclear plant accident in U.S. history happened in 1979.
John Buckley of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission told residents Wednesday that dismantling Three Mile Island's Unit 2 and returning the property to a pre-plant state would cost about $918-million in 2012 dollars. Commission officials said current plans call for the decommision to start sometime after April 2034, and they expressed confidence that there will be enough money to complete the process.
But Eric Epstein of TMI Alert, which favors alternatives to nuclear power and monitors the plant, says he doesn't think that will ever happen.
