Rancho Seco property in Sacramento County. This nuke plant was closed in 1989 by a public vote. The 2,772 Megawatt plant was silenced and the surrounding lands are now managed by SMUD and the Nature Conservancy. I wonder if the fish glow in the dark? (just kidding)
I recall the hoopla about the plant and it had an inordinate amount of downtime while repairs were being made. I wondered what may have been if the plant was fixed and its power was made available over the last 25 years? But, the people of Sacramento made their choice and closed the plant.
Now with low cost natural gas perhaps the people of the SMUD district will see some payback.
I winder if the hysteria over the movie "The China Syndrome" had any impact on the vote?
