The governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie said that the Oyster Creek Nuclear Power Plant in Ocean City, N.J., is ahead of schedule regarding its planned 2019 shut down.

Christie did not say how far ahead of schedule Exelon might be concerning the plant that supplies the state with 9 percent of its electricity demand. However, he touted the state's energy master plan that "has focused on the increase in building natural gas plants."


Due to this publication not appreciating NETC anti-nuclear stance, I am avoiding using a live link to their news article and I will place the link below as simply text. Please copy & paste from the text if you wish.

It's not just area residents that are eagerly awaiting Oyster Creeks final closure, I'm in Illinois and I'm obviously excited to see it close. I remember clearly how during hurricane Sandy, Oyster Creek Nuclear Plant refused to shutdown prior to the hurricane winds and waves reaching it.

Unfortunately even after Oyster Creek is shutdown, the nuclear waste that plant has generated will likely site onsite for many generations and be an area of concern and health hazard for many.
