KEWAUNEE (AP) - Local officials say losing the Kewaunee nuclear power plant will have a major impact on the area's economic landscape.
Kewaunee County Administrator Edward Dorner says the plant is one of the county's largest employers with about 400 workers. Dorner says the county will also lose an annual $900,000 utility tax payment from the state when the plant closes next year.
The Virginia-based Dominion said Monday it hasn't been able to find a buyer for the nuclear plant and plans to close it in the second quarter of next year.
Gov. Scott Walker says the closure highlights the need to decrease unnecessary federal regulations slowing the process for companies, like Dominion, to keep their businesses profitable.
