Cuomo Presses Plan to Shut Indian Point Nuclear Plant, NYT Says

Advisers to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo told officials at Entergy Corp. (ETR) that he’s determined to shut the company’s Indian Point nuclear plant, the New York Times reported.

The licenses for two reactors, located about 35 miles north of New York City, are set to expire in 2013 and 2015. A new law to streamline the siting of new power plants may make it easier to replace the electricity produced at Indian Point, the newspaper said.
