Kimberly Pierceall, writer for The Virginian-Pilot: The utility, Dominion Energy, told federal regulators in 2015 that it intended to keep the plant open through at least 2053, and on Tuesday, it officially applied for another 20-year extension with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The utility has said it also plans to seek a 20-year extension for a second nuclear plant, the North Anna Power Station in Louisa County, east of Charlottesville. The plant employs about 915 people who earn an average salary of $90,200.
