Point Beach nuclear power plant ready to make 17 percent more electricity
The Point Beach nuclear power plant in Manitowoc County wants to make 17 percent more electricity.
Its owner, Next-Era Energy, has asked the federal government for its approval.
But the Nuclear Regulatory Commission says it must first consider a licensing change for the plant's operator, the FPL Group of Florida.
And the NRC's Viktoria Mytling says it will be sometime after 2011 before a final decision is made.
