The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has received an application from Vistra Operations Company to renew the operating licenses for the Comanche Peak Nuclear Generating Station in Glen Rose, Texas. The application is now available on the NRC website.

Vistra filed the application on Oct. 3, seeking to renew the licenses for an additional 20 years of operation. Comanche Peak’s two pressurized-water reactors, about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth, Texas, are currently licensed to operate through Feb. 8, 2030, for Unit 1 and through Feb. 2, 2033, for Unit 2.
