In the 1990s Yankee Atomic commissioned an academic study on the social and economic impacts of America’s first commercial nuclear power plant closure. Twenty years later, this study began to get ‘hits’ as nuclear host communities began to look for information about closure impacts at the local level. Dr. Mullin’s study continues to be one of the few pieces of academic research focused on looking at closure from the ‘ground up’, rather than economic analysis of energy sectors or assessment of energy supply.
