TVA Gives Second Look At Finishing Ala. Reactors
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Tennessee Valley Authority is giving a second look at finishing two nuclear reactors that the agency virtually abandoned 20 years ago in Alabama.

TVA officials say the long-deferred reactors at the Bellefonte site in Scottsboro, Ala., will be studied this year as a potential new power source. TVA is planning to spend up to $10 million on the review.

Bellefonte is the same location where TVA is considering building two next-generation reactors.

TVA has made no firm commitments to build any of the four reactors.

TVA currently operates six reactors and is working to bring online a seventh unit in Tennessee that was similarly mothballed before completed.
