The Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant in Vernon may soon have a new corporate name.
Plant owner Entergy Nuclear has chosen the name Enexus Energy Corporation for Vermont Yankee and a number of other properties.
Entergy says Enexus is a combination of the words “energy” and “nexus” and is designed to convey what the company calls “the appeal of reliable nuclear power.” The company claims nuclear power is virtually emissions-free.
Enexus would become a separate legal entity spun off from a number of Entergy properties. It would be governed by its own board of directors and be based in Jackson, Mississippi.
Entergy is also considering changing its name to EquaGen LLC.
