The article focuses on the request of NextEra Energy Resources LLC for the relicensing of its Seabrook Nuclear Power Plant in New Hampshire. It says that the submission of NextEra of its License Renewal Application and Environmental Report was surprising for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. In comparison to the nuclear power plant disaster in Japan, NextEra spokesman Alan Griffith says that 6.6 magnitude was the largest earthquake to hit New England, as to the 9.0 magnitude in Japan.
