Duke Energy to sell off equipment from retired nuclear power plant

Selling and transferring nuclear fuel assemblies is safe and heavily regulated in the U.S.

Duke Energy Florida will sell 76 unused nuclear fuel assemblies from its retired Crystal River Nuclear Plant north of Tampa through a request for proposals (RFP) process.

Selling and transferring nuclear fuel assemblies is safe and heavily regulated in the U.S.

Federally licensed U.S. nuclear power plants and nuclear fuel fabricators are the only entities receiving Duke Energy Florida's RFP to buy the nuclear fuel assemblies.

All proceeds from the sale of these assets will benefit Florida customers by reducing the amount of money Duke Energy Florida may recover from customers.
