BRATTLEBORO, Vermont — The owner of the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant has detailed some its plans for the shutdown of the plant at the end of the year.

An Entergy official told the Nuclear Decommissioning Citizens Advisory Panel on Thursday that the company expects to have plant's spent fuel moved into dry cask storage by the end of 2020.

He said Entergy would reduce the plant's staff by more than 40 percent early next year with another large staff cut in the spring 2016.

He also said the company would complete a decommissioning site assessment in the next 30 days, ahead of the deadline.
