Just short of 47 years after commencing operations, the Indian Point Unit 2 reactor is closing today, 30 April 2020. Located on the Hudson River, 48 km from Manhattan, New York, the PWR was taken off the grid under the terms of an unusual 9 January 2017 agreement between the nuclear plant owner Entergy, non-governmental organization Riverkeeper and the state of New York. Entergy invested over US$1 billion in the two remaining 1,000 MW Units 2 and 3 in recent years. Unit 1, a smaller 250 MW reactor, was closed in 1974 just 12 years after it had started up.
