The NRC is considering Entergy's application to relicense Indian Point 2 & 3 which are operating under their original 40 year licenses, expiring in 2013 and 2015, respectively. Both IP2 and IP3 have been plagued with major safety problems for decades. As the reactors age, Indian Point will experience an increasing number of equipment and safety-related failures.
What's at stake?
With the NRC’s demonstrated lack of effective oversight and Entergy’s apparent disregard for public safety, renewing Indian Point’s licenses for another twenty years puts 20 million people at risk.

The Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition (IPSEC) is a coalition of environmental, health and public policy organizations, founded in 2001 to address the vulnerability of the nuclear reactors at Indian Point. Over 20 million people live within 50 miles of the plant. Our concerns include both existing radiation releases and potential additional releases from either human error, aging infrastructure or terrorism, and the flawed, unfixable evacuation plan. Our grassroots efforts have enlisted the support of hundreds of local, state and federal officials.
IPSEC members are currently fighting the proposed 20-year relicensing of the aging, leaking reactors.
Nuclear power is neither clean nor green! Conservation and renewable energy sources hold the key to a sustainable future for the Hudson Valley Region.
