Vt. agency argues against nuke license renewal

There are 1 comment on the www.forbes.com story from Feb 13, 2009, titled Vt. agency argues against nuke license renewal. In it, www.forbes.com reports that:

The Vermont Yankee nuclear plant hasn't demonstrated it should get a 20-year license extension, a state agency said Wednesday, citing the absence of a deal that would enable the plant to sell power to Vermont after 2012. "Without an appropriate (power purchase deal) continued operation of the plant fails to promote the general good," David Lamont, director of planning at the Department of Public Service, said in written testimony filed at the Public Service Board.

If VT blocks the license renewal, where will that lost generation come from? What other base load unit does VT have under construction to provide power to its citizens?
