Activist to speak on risks of nuclear plant decommissioning via MLive

SOUTH HAVEN, MI — Vermont activist Chris Williams will speak about the risks of decomissioning nuclear plants, as the Palisades Nuclear Plant prepares for closure. 

Williams’s presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 13, in room 141 at Lake Michigan College’s South Haven Campus, 125 Veterans Boulevard, in South Haven. 

Doors open at 6 p.m. to the free event open to the public, organizers said. 

Williams is a watchdog advocate focused on the decommissioning of Entergy’s Vermont Yankee plant, a news release from Michigan Safe Energy Future – Shoreline Chapter states.

Entergy Nuclear is also the owner-operator of Palisades Nuclear Plant near South Haven and announced last December that it plans to close Palisades in October of 2018.

Williams will share what he’s learned from watching the Entergy-NorthStar proposal unfold in Vermont firsthand, the news release states. 

He plans to talk about what people in Southwest Michigan can watch for as decommissioning dismantlement of physical infrastructure and radiological clean-up at Palisades proceeds.

Williams was one of the grassroots organizers for Citizens Awareness Network, which campaigned to close Vermont Yankee and replace it with sustainable energy generation.

Before his work in Vermont, Williams served for 25 years as executive director of Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana, a not-for-profit consumer and environmental advocacy organization. 

A negotiated early buyout of the fifteen-year power purchase agreement (PPA) between Entergy Nuclear and Consumers Energy triggered the Palisades shutdown plan.

The event is hosted by Michigan Safe Energy Future – Shoreline and Kalamazoo Chapters and the Sierra Club Southwest Michigan Group; Beyond Nuclear, of Takoma Park, Maryland; and Don’t Waste Michigan.
