Germany’s oldest remaining nuclear plant shuts down.

Germany’s oldest nuclear reactor will be shut down permanently overnight, its owner E.ON said on Saturday, marking a major milestone in the country’s drive for clean and sustainable energy.BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s oldest remaining nuclear reactor has been shut down, part of a move initiated four years ago to switch off all its nuclear plants by the end of 2022. It would be completely out of service on Sunday, according to E.ON, which is abiding by legislation that requires the closure of all commercial nuclear reactors by 2022.

It is the first reactor to close since Germany switched off the oldest eight of its 17 nuclear reactors in 2011, just after Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant disaster.
