Introduction: It is circumstantial; however, public documentation regarding the Riverstone Holdings LLC takeover of Talen Energy on more than one occasion indicated that no operational changes were included in the $14 per share buy-out deal noted above and in previous posts.
I began my review of Talen Energy, prior to October 2016, regarding SSES cask storage requirements, and later grew concerned when discussions of License Transfer, Talen Energy to Riverstone Holdings LLC and ownership changes became public. During my analysis, I became aware that the ethics of these companies might be suspect, and that their business practices, as demonstrated by their actions, could affect their ability to effectively manage SSES safely over the life of the license; thus affecting the health and safety of the greater Berwick, PA community.
Thirty-seven years after a partial meltdown of one of its two reactors made it a symbol of the potential for radioactive catastrophe, the Three Mile Island nuclear plant is still operating—for now. The Dauphin County, Pa., facility represents the perilous economic condition of a nuclear industry besieged by competition from inexpensive natural gas and subsidized wind and solar power.
