The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is keeping an eye on two nuclear power plants in Ohio after a series of problems, according to an article from Energy News Network. The issues reportedly involve backup systems at the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear plants within the past year.

The article notes that “backup system failures were the most immediate cause for the 2011 reactor core meltdowns at the Fukushima plant in Japan.”
