Crystal River nuclear plant in Citrus county is planning to re-open after multiple delays. Progress Energy has safely run the plant for more than 30-years and has recently spent more than $440,000,000 on repairs. Progress Energy Spokeswoman Jessica Lambert says Progress Energy is moving forward to ensure the repairs have been done right, and are safe. Lambert adds there are several tests the unit will be put through once they have completed the repairs to ensure public safety.
