Shearon Harris Plant Not Operating At Full Speed
Posted September 2, 2003
WAKE COUNTY, N.C. — The Shearon Harris nuclear plant is still not operating at full speed.
The plant has been running at less than 50 percent power since last Wednesday.
Operators shut down a pump system because of electrical problems. Officials say it was the same pump system that caused a full shutdown about two weeks ago.
As a result, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will step up inspections.
Progress Energy is using other energy sources to supply customers.
