CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -- New TVA President and CEO Bill Johnson is beginning to talk about the days that will follow his self-described "100-day plan" of listening and learning.
On Friday, day 84, the self-professed "staunch nuclear proponent" acknowledged in a meeting with the Chattanooga Times Free Press that TVA's nuclear "performance is not where it needs to be."
He cited past delays and cost overruns at the still-under-construction Watts Bar Unit 2 reactor near Spring City, Tenn., and the continuing "red" safety flag at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant in North Alabama.
"We are making progress," he said. "It's slow. One of my objectives is to make it run and run well."
