Three Mile Island Owner Looking at Reopening Plant

One of the reactors at the mothballed Three Mile Island power plant could be switched back on as part of a White House push to reopen closed nuclear facilities. 

Constellation Energy, which owns Three Mile Island, the Pennsylvania plant that sparked a nationwide panic when one of its reactors suffered a partial meltdown in 1979, says that the other reactor, Unit 1, kept running until 2019 and remains in “pretty good shape,” The Washington Post reported.
