PPL's Susquehanna station relicensing

 The Susquehanna Steam Electric Station (SSES) contains the nation’s 

19th and 20th largest nuclear reactors. The plant currently generates 60 

metric tons of nuclear waste annually. The SSES is a limited liability 

corporation (“LLC”), and out of the rate base. A license extension, uprate or 

additional unit, will dramatically increase the gap in radiological 

decommissioning and expose taxpayers to increased financial burdens.   

 According to PP&L and PPL’s Annual Reports, the Company cannot predict 

with any degree of confidence how much it will cost to decommission the SSES.
