April 29, 2015 NEC’s Motion for Leave to Intervene
Entergy repeatedly claims in their opposition to our motion to intervene that NEC will slow the docket down. Entergy THEMSELVES asked for delays in the proceeding of nearly a year (see July 25 and Oct 29 below). – Clay
July 25, 2014 Entergy’s FIRST request for delay in proceeding. Results in the VPSB saying “You are hereby notified that the July 30,2014, Prehearing Conference in this docket is cancelled. The Public Service Board will hold a rescheduled PREHEARING CONFERENCE on Wednesday, October 29, 2014,
October 29, 2014, the Vermont Public Service Board held a prehearing conference in this proceeding. Entergy asks for SECOND delay in the proceeding. At the prehearing conference, Entergy VY recommended that…the Board not establish a schedule for this proceeding at this time. Instead, Entergy VY proposed that it would…identify possible dates for a status conference in the late winter or early spring of 2015. See Board order on Oct. 30.
Oct 30, 2014 Board Order: “Based on Entergy VY’s representation that the delay will not result in a compacted schedule, we adopt its recommendation.”
April 10, 2015 You are hereby notified that the Public Service Board will hold a STATUS CONFERENCE, on Wednesday, April 29, 2015,
April 29, 2015 at status conference Entergy is ready to proceed. Their claims of NEC holding up the works is nonsensical.

5 A10. The Second ISFSI storage pad is sized for 25 cask spaces. Entergy VY has calculated
6 that 58 casks will be required to hold all the spent nuclear fuel on the VY Station site
7 following permanent shutdown of the facility in the fourth quarter of 2014. The existing
8 pad has 40 cask spaces so there will be 65 total cask spaces with the addition of the
9 Second ISFSI storage pad. A total of 4 spaces, accessible from the apron, must be kept
10 open to allow for movement of casks on the ISFSI storage pad and access to each cask.
11 Therefore, the total capacity will be 61 casks, sufficient to hold 58 casks of spent nuclear
12 fuel and up to three casks containing greater than Class C waste. Entergy VY has not yet
13 determined where it will place each cask or where the four open spaces will be located
