WHAT IS LICENSE RENEWAL?

Similar to a driver's license that needs to be renewed to allow continued driving, a nuclear power plant also needs to renew its license to continue operating. This is a comprehensive multi-year process by which nuclear plant operating companies can apply to extend the operations of their plants for an additional 20 years beyond the original license term. A federal government agency – the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) – will thoroughly review the license renewal application.

The license renewal process is ongoing, and NextEra Energy Resources remains fully confident that the plant's license renewal application will meet or exceed the NRC's rigorous standards for approval of a safe, reliable and environmentally beneficial period of extended operation.
