Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

Even though IPEC makes more money than the rest of the company combined, I wouldn't be surprised to hear that announcement next year. (Not closed, just sold)

None of this is news,....

this is from 2013:

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/report--over-three-dozen-us-nuclear-reactors-at-risk-of-early-retirement-12-face-greatest-shutdown-pressure-215857411.html

Report:  Over Three Dozen U.S. Nuclear Reactors At Risk Of Early Retirement, 12 Face Greatest Shutdown Pressure Jul 17, 2013,

https://insideclimatenews.org/slideshow/14-us-nuclear-plants-closing-or-risk%E2%80%94-photographs-and-text

the plants listed in the slideshow and the article are the same plants we are still talking about, and IIRC, the first big data dumps for at risk plants were circulating in 2012,...

no news, no surprises,...

plus, it's Entergy, and the loozeeanna boys seem predisposed to play hardball when it comes to Yankeez, IIRC, the company is structured to facilitate that disposition towards things west of the Pecos and north of the M-D line,...

now, the zero emissions credits are a bit of a surprise, too late for Kewaunee and VY, perhaps not too late for Ft. Calhoun as they are not past the point of no return just yet,....

Entergy has stated that they plan to divest themselves of non-regulated markets.  IPEC is the last one standing.

Entergy is unique in that it's split across regulate / non-regulated in one company.They tried to split, but  didn't get approval. Being under both rules makes investors nervous, and accounting a nightmare.

I agree, the only thing keeping IP open for business is the second unit. I'm not sure how much longer that will save their skin. I'd bet that Palisades is on the short list and won't be surprised when the news release comes out on it's shutdown date.
