Sources inside Entergy confirmed that the company plans to restart generator unit 2 in May as Chairman Leo Denault told investors in a Thursday meeting.

Unit 2 has been off-line since the  550 ton stator of generator unit 1 crashed to the floor following a rigging failure on March 31, killing one and injuring eight.

Although it sustained no damge itself, unit two has been out of service as a matter of course since the terrible accident.

It is unknown when generator unit one will resume operation.
