FirstEnergy Corp said Three Mile Island's Unit 2 will be sold to an EnergySolutions Inc. unit for decommissioning, which "removes any future nuclear decommissioning obligations from FirstEnergy and is consistent with our strategy of focusing on regulated utility operations."
FirstEnergy units GPU Nuclear Inc., Metropolitan Edison Co., Jersey Central Power & Light Co. and Pennsylvania Electric Co. will transfer the Middletown, Pa., unit to TMI-2 Solutions LLC.
EnergySolutions said in July that it signed a term sheet for the transfer of Unit 2.
If approved by regulators, the transaction is expected to close in the second half of 2020.
Unit 2 was shut down after a partial core meltdown in 1979. Exelon owns Unit 1, which was closed last month.
