Duke Energy issued a notice to the state this week that it intends to transfer or lay off 585 employees at the shuttered Crystal River nuclear plant over the next year or so.
The utility expects to begin layoffs May 31. As many as 58 workers face termination by June 30.
Duke announced in February that it would close the Crystal River plant. The reactor had sat idle for almost two and a half years after a botched maintenance and upgrade project.
