     If generalizations can be made, all of the country's existing commercial nuclear power plants began production between 1970 and 1990 (five exceptions but not by much).
     They are located at roughly 60 sites in roughly 30 states producing roughly 20 percent of the country's electricity.
     Most will receive license extensions of 20 years on the original license of 40 years.
     Most have or will achieve production runs nearing two years and be consistently refueled in less than 30 days.
     Comment on the allowability of these generalizations would be appreciated.

Which was the nation's first full-scale, privately financed nuclear power plant. Retired in 1978, it was designated a Nuclear Historic Landmark by the American Nuclear Society.

Several guesses for Watts Bar, Bellefonte and Browns Ferry- Does anyone remember which one individual was the Radiation Protection Manager at each of the 3 plants.

OK... Dresden 1 was the first commercial reactor but not first to 'retire'.  Fermi 1 was a commercial reactor owned by Detroit Edison that shutdown in 1973 and the NRC states completed decommisioning in 1975.
