NEW YORK - Entergy Corp's 1,025-megawatt Indian Point 3 nuclear power unit in New York was back at full power early Monday, after shutting late late last week due to an automatic reactor trip, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in its power reactor status report.
The unit is located in Buchanan, New York, in Westchester County, about 45 miles north of New York City.
The station has two units, the 1,020-MW Unit 2 and Unit 3, which entered service in 1973 and 1976, respectively.
Unit 2 also continued to run at full power Monday, according to the NRC report.
One MW powers about 800 homes in New York.
Entergy, of New Orleans, owns and operates about 30,000 MW of generating capacity, markets energy commodities, and transmits and distributes power to 2.7 million customers in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas. (Reporting by Eileen Moustakis; Editing by John Picinich)
