Exelon is Strongly Committed to the Future of Nuclear EnergyExelon is Strongly Committed to the Future of Nuclear Energy<p><strong>CHICAGO </strong>- In response to media coverage of remarks made at the U.S. Energy Association's annual meeting in Washington last week, Exelon today clarified the company is fully committed to and investing in advancing the future of nuclear energy.</p><p>“We are unequivocally committed to a strong and successful future for nuclear energy, including advancing and investing in new technology while tirelessly promoting sound energy policies and critically needed market reforms,” said Chris Crane, Exelon president and CEO.</p><p>As the nation’s largest nuclear energy operator, Exelon is working to promote federal, regional and state policy reforms that appropriately value zero-emission nuclear power for its many environmental, economic, resiliency and national security benefits.</p><p>According to a recent report by The Brattle Group, the expected closures of four nuclear power plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania would increase carbon emissions by more than 20 million metric tons, essentially wiping out the environmental benefits of all the wind and solar built in the PJM region over the past 25 years.</p><p>Despite Exelon’s strong belief in nuclear energy, it is clear that new, large-scale nuclear plants are not viable in today’s U.S. competitive markets, where even existing nuclear plants are challenged due to the failure of these markets to value resiliency and environmental externalities.</p><p>With needed reforms, however, Exelon sees tremendous promise in advanced nuclear technologies, including small modular reactors that can be built on a shorter capital cycle, and Exelon is partnering with a variety of companies to pursue these innovative technologies. Exelon also continues to promote advanced nuclear reactor designs and advance international nuclear growth opportunities. In addition, Exelon has invested millions in predictive technologies and innovations and power uprates.  </p><p>“Exelon is fully engaged in preserving our nation’s existing nuclear fleet and advancing the nuclear technologies of tomorrow,” said Crane. “We can’t imagine a clean energy future without zero-emission nuclear energy.  But we also have to be honest with ourselves about the need for changes to markets and energy policy to value resilience and environmental attributes in a technology neutral way.  If we do that, then nuclear energy will easily find its place along with renewable energy and next-generation storage in America’s future energy mix.”</p> 4:00:00 AM

Braidwood Station Refueling Outage Powers The Regional EconomyBraidwood Station Refueling Outage Powers The Regional Economy<div><strong>BRACEVILLE, Ill.</strong> (April 9, 2018) — Operators at Exelon Generation’s Braidwood Station removed Unit 1 from service early Monday morning, beginning a planned refueling outage at the nuclear energy plant that will bring more than 1,600 additional workers to the region. A host of maintenance activities, inspections and upgrades completed during the annual refueling outage will help Braidwood deliver zero-emission, reliable electricity to Illinois customers for the next 18-month operating cycle.</div><div><br></div><div>During this year’s outage, technicians will be installing two new main power transformers on Unit 1. These massive, state-of-the-art electrical components help carry the plant’s outbound electricity efficiently on high-voltage power lines.</div><div><br></div><div>“We invest heavily in equipment maintenance and upgrades every year to ensure Braidwood Station continues to operate at world-class levels of safety and operational excellence,” said Braidwood Site Vice President Marri Marchionda-Palmer. “The work completed during this outage will help ensure we’re online during the peak summer months ahead, when consumers need us most.”   </div><div><br></div><div>Electricians, pipe fitters, welders, carpenters, laborers and other trades people are onsite to perform thousands of inspections, tests, maintenance activities, equipment upgrades and modifications that cannot be done while the unit is online, including replacing nearly one-third of the reactor’s fuel.</div><div><br></div><div>“The Exelon refueling outages put a lot of people to work in Illinois, providing jobs for thousands of skilled local and regional union and tradespeople,” said William Meyers, International Representative for the United Association of Journeyman and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry. “Exelon’s 11 reactors at six nuclear power plants in Illinois not only generate clean, reliable electricity, but they power the Illinois economy by employing our state’s highly skilled workers.” </div><div> </div><div>“During Braidwood’s outages, we see a lot of additional people passing through town, frequenting local establishments and spending money for several weeks before and during refueling outages,” said Christopher Osterfund, President of the Braidwood Chamber of Commerce. “It’s a real shot in the arm for the community.”</div><div> </div><div>Braidwood’s Unit 2 will keep supplying the region with carbon-free electricity during the Unit 1 outage.</div><div> </div><div>Braidwood Station is located 20 miles southwest of Joliet and has been producing carbon-free electricity for more than two million residents and businesses since 1988. Nearly half of Illinois’ electricity and more than 90 percent of Illinois’ carbon-free power is supplied by Exelon Generation’s nuclear power stations.  </div><div><br></div> 1:00:00 PM
