Palisades not waiting out the clock

The Palisades Power Plant, located in Covert Township, is pictured in December 2016, when a 2018 closure seemed likely. The plant will operate into 2022.

COVERT — 2018 was set to be the end of Palisades Nuclear Power Plant, but now it’s going to be a year to make updates, repairs and refuel again.

Palisades’ future was up in the air for most of 2017, but the plant was granted a stay in September that will keep it operating for the next four years.
