Ft. Calhoun Nuclear Plant To Make Taxpayers Pay

Ft. Calhoun has announced they will raise rates on customers citing part of the reason being the flood and the need to buy power to make up for the outage at Ft. Calhoun. We wrote previously that OPPD does not have the finances to cover flood repairs at Ft. Calhoun. Now OPPD wants FEMA to pay them for the $25.1 million it cost to buy power on the open market. FEMA has been primarily a program to aid home owners and small businesses with flood recovery, they would have to change FEMA rules to pay OPPD. OPPD seems determined to make the public pay for their mistakes no matter what. OPPD chose to site the plant at river level in a flood plain. OPPD has chosen to continue to run an aging plant past the 2013 end of life date and without sufficient finances to cover repairs and accidents. Now OPPD wants the public to pay for their mistakes.
