Erie Nuclear Power Plant
The Erie Nuclear Power Plant was a proposed nuclear power plant to be located 9 miles (14 km) southeast of Sandusky, Ohio. It was proposed in 1976 by Ohio Edison Company for the Central Area Power Coordination Group. The plant was to consist of two Babcock & Wilcox 1,267 megawatt reactors. Unit 1 was scheduled to be complete in 1986, Unit 2 in 1988. Preliminary work was canceled in 1980 due to new federal requirements placed on nuclear plants that make their construction more expensive and by a drop in anticipated customer energy demand.
