    Entergy says response coming

    BRATTLEBORO — Entergy Nuclear said Wednesday it was evaluating the latest filing by the New England Coalition to the Vermont Supreme Court, seeking to shut down the Vernon reactor until it has a state certificate of public good from the Public Service Board.

    “Vermont Yankee is evaluating the NEC filing and will be responding in accordance with legal rules and procedures,” said Entergy Nuclear spokesman James Sinclair.

    “Our focus is on the continued safe and reliable operation of Vermont Yankee, which is consistent with the favorable federal court decision we received earlier this year,” Sinclair said.

    New England Coalition, citing last Thursday’s decision by the Public Service Board, filed for an injunction against Yankee’s continued operation. They said Yankee had disregarded state law by continuing to operate after its permit expired on March 21, 2012.

    Entergy’s argument — that it was entitled to operate while a new permit was considered — was rejected earlier this year by the PSB.
