Brayton Point Power Plant Shuts Down Tonight


(PL) AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, THE COAL-FIRED BRAYTON POINT POWER PLANT IN SOMERSET IS SET TO SHUT DOWN FOR GOOD. AS WE’VE BEEN REPORTING… THE FOSSIL FUEL POWER PLANT HAS BEEN OPERATING FOR MORE THAN FIFTY YEARS… BUT OWNERS ARE COMMITTED TO PERMANENTLY ENDING THE GENERATION OF COMBUSTIBLE ENERGY HERE, RATHER THAN SIMPLY “MOTHBALLING” IT. ONE GROUP TOLD US LAST YEAR THEY HOPE TO SEE THE SITE TURNED INTO A CLEAN ENERGY HUB — MAYBE CONNECTING TO OFF- SHORE WIND FARMS. BUT AT THIS POINT THERE’S NO PLAN TO DO THAT. WE’LL HAVE MORE DETAILS FOR YOU ON THIS STORY TONIGHT ON
