SCRIBA — One of Nine Mile Point Nuclear Generating Station’s reactors faces shutdown if proposed clean energy standards and a contract benefitting the plant are not in place by September, according to a letter the company sent state officials Monday.

Exelon told the state Public Service Commission (PSC) that before the company commits to a $55 million refueling scheduled for Nine Mile’s Unit 1 in March 2017, the plant needs “the certainty” provided by the benefits of new energy standards and a “signed contract procuring zero emission credits” for Nine Mile Unit 1 and R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant in Ontario.
