Suspended review/Operating. The certificate holder submitted a request to amend the site certificate in August 2016. In May 2017, the certificate holder requested to suspend review of the amendment request.

If the certificate holder requests to re-initiate review of the amendment request, this webpage will be updated. Also, additional noticing will be issued regarding any changes to the amendment request and next applicable comment period. The facility is currently in operation, including operation of Unit 1 with a maximum capacity of 450 megawatts.
