MONTPELIER, Vermont — Nuclear watchdog groups in three states are questioning Entergy Corp.'s financial ability to operate plants in New York and Massachusetts.

The groups are zeroing in on the Fitzpatrick plant in upstate New York and the Pilgrim reactor in Massachusetts — as well as Vermont Yankee — citing USB Investment Services reports from earlier this year saying the Vermont and New York plants are facing negative cash flows by next year.

Entergy Corp. announced last year it would close Vermont Yankee by the end of this year due to poor economic performance.

The groups are asking the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to suspend the operating licenses of Vermont Yankee and the Fitzpatrick plant, and to investigate whether the Pilgrim plant should close as well.
