LOUISA, Va. - One of the nuclear reactors at Dominion Virginia Power's North Anna power station has been shut down for refueling.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch ( http://bit.ly/yz9CQ4) says the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission released figures showing the utility shut down Unit 1 over the weekend.
Refueling is typically conducted at 18-month intervals, and generally takes three to four weeks.
The NRC figures show Unit 2 at North Anna is operating at 100 percent capacity.
Dominion shut down Unit 1 in January for a couple of days because of an air line leak.
