BEAVER COUNTY (KDKA) — The Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant near Harrisburg officially stopped making electricity Friday.
It is the site of the worst commercial nuclear power accident in US history.
On the same day of the closure, hundreds of people rallied to keep the Beaver Valley Power Station up and running.
Workers, neighbors and several State Representatives voiced their concerns and gathered in great numbers on the steps of the Beaver County Courthouse to speak out and to be heard in Harrisburg.
The Beaver Valley Power Station in Shippingport is slated to shut down in June 2021.
They are demanding action by the state legislature and Governor Tom Wolf to enact energy policy reforms to prevent the plant from closing and to keep the smokestacks working.
One of the speakers was State Representative Rob Matzie.
“We are hopeful that we can craft something that has bipartisan support that can actually be voted out of committee, debated on the floor and get to the Governor’s desk,” he said. “It’s a tough task, I’m not gonna lie.”
