TVA gives up construction permits for Bellefonte units
The on-again, off-again plan for an operating Bellefonte nuclear power plant would appear to be off for good.
Nearly 47 years after being issued construction permits for two reactors at the Bellefonte site in northeast Alabama, the Tennessee Valley Authority has decided against renewing them, essentially extinguishing any remaining hope for the project, on which the utility has reportedly spent more than $5 billion.
