• Entergy, utilities fight over documents
    March 06,2013

    MONTPELIER ó More than five years after the spectacular collapse of a cooling tower at the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant, legal wrangling continues over the incident between Vermontís utilities and plant owner Entergy Corp.

    Vermont utilities that got power from the Vernon reactor under a contract with Entergy are suing because they were forced to buy more expensive electricity on the spot market. Vermont Yankee reduced power after the cooling tower collapse.

    Now the two sides are arguing in U.S. District Court over who should get to see what documents related to the case.

    Vermontís electric companies no longer get power directly from Vermont Yankee because the contract under which they did so expired a year ago.
