US utility Vistra, the parent company of Luminant Energy that owns the 2,400 Comanche Peak nuclear power plant in Texas, announced that it has executed a $3.43 billion definitive agreement to acquire the nuclear and retail businesses of Ohio-based Energy Harbor and its three nuclear facilities in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The deal narrows the gap between the second-largest merchant nuclear fleet in the country, now at 6.4 gigawatts, and the largest, owned by Constellation Energy at 22 GW.
