The Tennessee Valley Authority has applied to extend the license of its Sequoyah nuclear plant in Tennessee, the utility announced. "By applying for a 20-year extension of our current operating license now, we are affirming to the NRC that our plant is safe and in solid material condition," said Preston Swafford, TVA's chief nuclear officer. About $23 million would be spent in the license-extension process, TVA said.
