Exelon Generation to Test Public Notification System on May 2 Exelon Generation to Test Public Notification System on May 2 <p></p><div>ONTARIO, NY. - Exelon Generation’s R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant will perform an annual full volume test of its emergency warning sirens between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 2. </div><div><br></div><div>The test will involve sounding all 96 sirens in Ginna’s 10-mile radius for three to five minutes. Additional single-siren tests may be conducted throughout the day. Exelon Generation tests Ginna’s siren system on a daily, quarterly and annual basis to ensure public safety. </div><div><br></div><div>The purpose of the sirens is to alert residents to tune to an Emergency Alert System (EAS) television or radio station for information in the event of an emergency at Ginna. These stations are listed in the emergency planning brochure mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant. Because this is only a test, no response by the public is necessary.</div><div><br></div><div>R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is located on 426 acres along the south shores of Lake Ontario in Ontario, NY, about 20 miles northeast of Rochester and 53 miles southwest of Exelon's Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station. The plant generates enough carbon-free electricity for nearly 500,000 homes.

Exelon Generation's Limerick Station 'Pumps Up' Perkiomen Creek for Annual Fishing DerbyExelon Generation's Limerick Station 'Pumps Up' Perkiomen Creek for Annual Fishing Derby<div>​POTTSTOWN, Pa. – Exelon Generation’s Limerick Generating Station is proud to support the Annual Youth Trout Fishing Derby on May 6, located on the East Branch Perkiomen Creek at Branchwood Park in Morwood, Pa. This popular annual event is sponsored by State Rep. ​Robert Godshall and the Franconia Parks and Recreation Commission. It is open to children up to age 12. </div><div><br></div><div>Exelon Generation supports the event by releasing water from the Bradshaw Reservoir into the East Branch Perkiomen Creek to provide additional water for the event. This water release is performed with the support and approval of the Delaware River Basin Commission. The water level will temporarily increase a few inches. The water release is dependent on the expected water level of the creek the day of the event. Exelon Generation will not release water if there is a high natural creek flow due to rainfall. </div><div><br></div><div>“We demonstrate our commitment to the community in our daily operations at the plant and through partnerships such as this one,” said Site Vice President Rick Libra. “Supporting this event is just one way Limerick gives back to the community.”</div><div><br></div><div>In addition to countless volunteer hours in the community, Limerick donates hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to community organizations. Last year, Limerick’s donation of more than $180,000 to the Schuylkill River Restoration Fund brought the total amount donated since 2005 to $2 million. In 2017, Limerick employees will give back more than $200,000 to the local United Way or its affiliate agencies, as pledged during last year’s Employee Giving Campaign.</div><div><br></div><div>Limerick Generating Station is a nuclear energy plant located in southeastern Pennsylvania, about 20 miles northwest of Philadelphia in Montgomery County. It is built on a 650-acre site and draws its cooling water from the Schuylkill River. Together, Limerick Unit 1 and Unit 2 produce 2,345 net megawatts (MW) of electricity - enough energy to power more than two million average American homes.</div><div><br></div>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/limerick-station-pumps-up-perkiomen-creek-for-annual-fishing-derby4/27/2017 3:00:00 PM
New York's Clean Energy Standard at Work: Ginna's Refueling Outage Powers Local EconomyNew York's Clean Energy Standard at Work: Ginna's Refueling Outage Powers Local Economy<div><strong>ONTARIO, N.Y.</strong> – Operators removed Exelon Generation’s R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant from service just after midnight on Monday to begin the station’s planned refueling outage. The shutdown ended a successful 18-month operating cycle that delivered industry-leading levels of safety and reliability. </div><div><br></div><div>The Clean Energy Standard, approved by the Public Service Commission last August, ensures Exelon Generation’s Ginna Nuclear Power Plant will continue to operate securing essential jobs, tax dollars and clean energy for the region. The economic benefits are especially visible during refueling outages when the plant brings in hundreds of temporary staff. </div><div><br></div><div>This year, 200 Exelon employees from around the fleet and more than 700 supplemental workers will join Ginna’s team, filling local hotels, restaurants and shops. The extra staff will perform maintenance activities, tests and safety inspections on a variety of plant components and systems. </div><div>Many of the activities performed during the outage cannot be accomplished while the unit is operational and all are designed to ensure the continued safe, efficient and reliable production of emissions-free electricity. </div><div><br></div><div>“We applaud Governor Cuomo and the Public Service Commission for prioritizing Upstate jobs, tax dollars and clean energy. Our employees are committed to operating Ginna safely and reliably for many years to come,” said Site Vice President Bill Carsky. “In addition to the ongoing benefits of operating Ginna, the refueling outage adds an extra boost to the local economy. Hundreds of highly-skilled nuclear professionals need places to stay, eat and shop.”</div><div><br></div><div>Ginna’s 580 megawatts of electricity powers more than 500,000 homes and businesses with no greenhouse gas emissions. Ginna’s clean power offsets more than two million tons of carbon dioxide annually, the equivalent of taking almost 400,000 cars off the road. </div><div><br></div><div>R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is located on 426 acres along the south shores of Lake Ontario in Ontario, NY, about 20 miles northeast of Rochester and 53 miles southwest of Exelon's Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station.</div>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/ginna-refueling-outage-powers-local-economy4/24/2017 3:00:00 PM
