MOST RECENT POLL

Do you think there is a real possibility that Millstone Nuclear Power Station could cease operations and does that worry you?

Yes. Nuclear plants have closed elsewhere in the country. If Connecticut does not allow Dominion to lock in long-term electric sales contracts it could close Millstone.

31%

No. This is just a bluff by Dominion to scare the legislature into passing a law that will allow it to make a greater profit at the expense of consumers.

27%

It would be a good thing to end the use of nuclear power and stop creating nuclear waste. Go green!

9%

If you think electric prices in Connecticut are high now, just wait to see what happens if Millstone closes.
