Chester Generating Station

Chester Generating Station is operated by Exelon Power, a business unit of Exelon Generation, as part of the Peaking Division.  It is a 3-unit oil power plant located in Chester, Pennsylvania.

Exelon Generation owns and operates a number of intermediate and peaking fossil power plants in several states, including Pennsylvania, Maryland and Illinois.  These units are used as needed for peak demand periods and load balancing.

Emergency Planning

All Exelon facilities employ sophisticated emergency response plans to protect public health and safety.  These plans are reviewed and approved by state governments and regulatory agencies.  The emergency planning includes coordination with local counties, municipalities and school districts.

Supporting the Local Economy

Exelon Power's plants pay local real estate taxes every year to support county and township government, area schools, libraries, park districts and other taxing bodies where our plants are located.
