The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has approved plans to dismantle the $5.5-billion Shoreham nuclear power plant on Long Island, N.Y., the most expensive nuclear plant never to commercially generate electricity. The decommissioning order, issued late Thursday, was made public Friday. It came a day after the NRC dismissed all appeals in the case of the New York power plant, which has never operated above a 5% testing level. The order opens the way for Shoreham to become the first commercial U.S.

The Long Island Lighting Co. agreed to $400 million in rate reductions and refunds to settle a racketeering lawsuit accusing the utility of lying to obtain more money from customers for its Shoreham nuclear power plant. The settlement of the suit, which had threatened to drive LILCO into bankruptcy, did not resolve the fate of the still-unlicensed and financially troubled Shoreham plant.

The Supreme Court on Friday rejected a request by proponents of New York's Shoreham nuclear power plant to block dismantling of the reactor by the Long Island Lighting Co. The court issued a one-line order turning down the request. Plant supporters had sought to block what is known as a possession-only license, which would allow LILCO to start taking the plant apart. Seeking help from the high court were Scientists and Engineers for Secure Energy and the Shoreham-Wading River School District.

Decommissioning of the never used Shoreham nuclear power plant moved closer as Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist refused to block the transfer of the plant to New York state. The plant could be turned over for dismantling as early as this summer. New York state long opposed operation of the plant on grounds there was no way to evacuate nearby residents in case of an accident. There followed a decade-long safety battle. That led to an agreement for Long Island Lighting Co.

The Justice Department joined in a lawsuit Friday aimed at blocking the dismantling of the Shoreham nuclear power plant in New York, arguing that the state failed to follow its own procedures for safeguarding the environment. The intervention in a state court came on behalf of the Energy Department, which has strongly opposed the shutdown of the 813-megawatt plant on Long Island on the grounds that it is needed to meet the region's electricity needs.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission took a big step Friday toward licensing New York's Shoreham nuclear power plant despite an agreement between the state and a utility earlier this week to close the embattled facility. In a 4-0 vote, the commission upheld a decision by one of its licensing boards to dismiss state and local officials from NRC adjudicatory proceedings, effectively ending their effort to block an operating license for the Long Island plant.
