The following statement quoted in Msg #11 of Vol 1 #662 is not historically
"The North Renfrew Times
June 4, 2002
This week in history:
JUNE 6, 1962: The first electricity to be produced by a nuclear power
plant was sent into the transmission lines of Ontario Hydro at Rolphton
on June 4 ............."
The following nuclear reactors supplied electricity into the transmission
lines some years earlier than 1962;
Shippingport,Pa.,USA 60 MWe in 1957.
Calder Hall, England, UK, the first of the 4x41MWe units in 1956.
Chapelcross, Scotland, UK, the first of the 4x41MWe units in 1959.
I first visited Chapelcross in 1961. When I looked at the station again this
year (2002)during a visit to my home country, two of the units were on line
still supplying electricity to the grid after 43 years.
