Nuclear Regulators Extend Life of Turkey Point Reactors to 80 Years

The Nuclear Regulatory Agency granted two controversial license extensions to Turkey Point's aging nuclear reactors on Thursday. The 20-year extensions - which extend the life of the reactors to 80 - are the first of their kind in the U.S. The licenses for the 1970s-era reactors overlooking Biscayne Bay were set to expire in 2032 and 2033.
