The Vermont Yankee Nuclear power plant shut down on December 29, 2014.  The plant and surrounding grounds must now be decommissioned.  NorthStar is a company that specializes in decommissioning and has pending applications before the Vermont Public Utility Commission to purchase the plant from Entergy Nuclear.  NorthStar CEO Scott State says his company can decommission, clean up and complete site restoration of the plant decades sooner than Entergy had planned.
