World A- A A+
The last three active nuclear power plants in Germany have been shut down, operators said, Ednews informs via Fox News.
RWE noted that the generator at its Emsland nuclear power plant in Lingen in Lower Saxony was disconnected from the grid on Saturday, at 10:37 pm CET. PreussenElektra noted its plant Isar 2 ceased operations at 11:52 pm CET and EnBW announced that the Unit II of the Neckarwestheim nuclear power plant (GKN II) was disconnected from the electricity grid at 11:59 pm CET on Saturday.
Meanwhile, billionaire Elon Musk slammed the decision to close nuclear power plants in Germany, claiming Berlin should have reopened the plants that were shut earlier rather than shut all the remaining ones. "This is total madness. I want to be clear. Total madness," he said in an interview with Welt.
