Midwest ISO Concludes That Closing Of Kewaunee Power Station Will Not Affect Regional Electric Reliability

"We intend to take all steps necessary to ensure the protection of the public, employees and the environment. The station will have the resources it needs," he said.

The station will remain under the oversight of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) throughout the shutdown and decommissioning process.

Following shutdown, Dominion plans to meet its obligations to the two utilities that purchase Kewaunee's generation through market purchases until the power purchase agreements expire in December 2013.

Kewaunee Power Station, located on Lake Michigan about 35 miles southeast of Green Bay, began commercial operation in 1974. It has one Westinghouse pressurized water reactor. Dominion acquired the station in July 2005. In February 2011, the NRC renewed the station's operating license for an additional 20 years, until 2033.

Dominion is one of the nation's largest producers and transporters of energy, with a portfolio of approximately 27,400 megawatts of generation, 11,000 miles of natural gas transmission, gathering and storage pipeline and 6,300 miles of electric transmission lines.  Dominion operates the nation's largest natural gas storage system with 947 billion cubic feet of storage capacity and serves retail energy customers in 15 states.
