The session to take a look at how First Energy’s Davis-Besse nuclear power generating station operated in 2012 will be held at the Carroll Township Service Complex in Oak Harbor.  But, according to company spokesperson Jennifer Young, this year it won’t involve an auditorium setting with one large public gathering.

“Sometimes the NRC will have a formal meeting.  But this time, with Davis-Besse, they’re having like an open house. .  They will have displays there, and people to talk to.  But its informal.”

Although there is not going to be a big-forum meeting, active discussion is still expected.

First Energy is planning to change out the steam generators in the Davis-Besse plant for newer technology units. A number of environmental and anti-nuclear power groups are protesting that move. The problem they cite is that the new generators are a dramatic departure from what was originally in the plant and should be considered experimental. That, say opponents, should not be allowed without more scrutiny from regulators.
