Riverside joined Exelon Power’s fleet in 2012 through Exelon’s merger with Constellation.
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.
