Vermont Yankee: A Look Back At Its Start

Dec 29, 2014

On Dec. 29, 2014,  workers at the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Station cut off the flow of electricity to the grid. That marks the end of power generation for the plant after more than 42 years.

Vermont Yankee has been a big story during that time - politically, economically and environmentally.

VPR's Alex Keefe discussed the plant's history with Steve Terry, a reporter for the Rutland Herald in the 1960s, and later an executive at Green Mountain Power.
