The Millstone Nuclear Power Station in Waterford, Conn., is one of those plants. Its owners aren't sure the plant — which is the largest generator of carbon-free electricity in New England — will be producing power at all unless they can get financial booster shot from the state. WBUR's Bruce Gellerman reports for All Things Considered.
