    People found out I was looking at TN to retire and sent me TVA job postings. When I’m done...I’m done with that life.

    Ops, mech, electric, controls?

    It can be stressful but its also rewarding. I take pride in being a nuclear operator and hope to retire from this industry in many years.

    Good for you Jeff. Power Generation is a rewarding career. Thankfully you’re in nuclear. Coal and NG are getting a little sporty right now.

    Nuclear is the past and the future in my opinion. I just wish INPO would do a positive PR campaign so people are educated on the safe/clean nuclear practices versus the uneducated news outlets pushing negative press.

    I can always dream…

    I'm in hydro generation, very rewarding.
    We're slowly getting coal guys make the transition to our hydro, before they are forced out.

    Currently unemployed, in a year, I'll be chronically unemployed. Some people would call it "retired", but I like the way chronically unemployed sounds. In the words of the late great philosopher, Mr. Charles Daniels "If you don't like the way I'm livin', just leave this long haired country boy alone".

    We are doing the same thing, but have nowhere near the hydro power you have in the PNW.

    coal power plant operator turned energy production supervisor here. I’m 32 and won’t see retirement at my plant. Hoping to be repositioned elsewhere before the plant shuts down.
