The Black Fox Nuclear Power Plant was a nuclear power plant proposed by the Public Service Company of Oklahoma (PSO) in May 1973. The facility was to be built approximately 12 miles outside of Inola, Oklahoma, and encompass the use of two General Electric (GE) Boiling Water Reactors. While PSO initially wooed the citizens of Inola with the promises of economic growth and better schools, after the Three Mile Island accident, and accidents at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant, the people became disillusioned with the idea of housing such a facility in their backyards. After nine years of court battles, the decision was abandoned in 1982 and no complex would be built. However, the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) allowed PSO to pass their losses onto PSO consumers with a rate hike to replace the money lost. It has recently been suggested again.
