Plymouth: Nuclear power plant still offline

For the fourth day in a row, no power is being generated at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Plant in Plymouth on Tuesday.

An Entergy spokesman says the plant reached 14 percent of its capacity last Friday, three days after the first unplanned, automatic shutdown of the plant’s reactor in more than a year.

The reactor was being restarted following a scheduled shutdown last week for maintenance and refueling.
