The Perry Nuclear Power Plant In Perry, Ohio. Perry Unit 2, nearly complete, never opened.
Perry Nuclear Power Plant
The Perry nuclear reactor (commercial power plant) is located on Lake Erie in Perry, Ohio, 40 miles east of Cleveland.
Unit 1 opened in 1987.
Unit two never opened after being nearly complete.
The final cost was almost 12 times the original estimate.
The plant sits on a seismically active site that is riddled with geologic faults.
Whistleblowers reported that a geologic fault line was identified while Perry was under construction, and that workers were instructed to keep quiet as they filled the fissure with thousands of tons of concrete.
Fracking in the area has caused small earthquakes.
