Snip: "DTE Energy's tentative plans to build a new nuclear power
plant near its Fermi 2 facility will be the subject of a public meeting
Wednesday night in the Meyer Theater at the La-Z-Boy Center [1555 S.
Raisinville Rd.] of Monroe County Community College."
Snip: "The utility has plans for a 1,560-megawatt plant - an
advanced General Electric design that the federal Nuclear Regulatory
Commission has yet to certify as acceptable.
Construction would start by 2014 with completion before
2021." [emphasis mine- Kay]
Snip: "Supporters of the idea say it would meet future electrical
demand and provide new jobs and tax base for the community. Opponents
suggest that the design is untried, would generate nuclear waste that
would be dangerous for ages and would drive up electric rates."
