Nuclear plant to close ahead of schedule

One of the oldest nuclear power plants in the country will be shutting down more than a year ahead of schedule.

Exelon, the largest nuclear utility in the country, said Friday that it would shut down the Oyster Creek power station in New Jersey in October, more than a year ahead of schedule.

The power plant decided to close early, even though it is licensed by the federal government to provide electricity through 2029.
