They replaced a lot of the output by reactivating 2 reactors at a nuclear power site.

Yes, but that is a drop in the bucket compared to the output of the previous plant. Most of the slack was picked up by nuclear.

This is how they really shut things down, BB will say it was not competitive and antiquated. Along with more BS.

If they can produce electric at less than 2 cents a KWHr they are welcome to

bid in the power auctions.

Here are some of the costs of different methods of electrical production.

Why would any responsible lender loan to a company that could have a lot of

stranded assets and no way to pay its debt?

The power portion of my electric bill is less than 2 cents per KWHr so at prices

any higher they have to lose money.
