Ginna to Test Two Public Notification System Sirens Ginna to Test Two Public Notification System Sirens <p><strong>ONTARIO, NY (July 21)</strong> — R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant will test two of its public notification sirens on Wednesday, July 27. These sirens are being sounded as a post-maintenance test. Residents in the area will hear the siren for approximately four minutes. </p><p>The tests will occur at the following times and locations: <br>• 2 p.m. – Shepard Rd., just east of Stone-Lonesome Rd. in Williamson<br>• 3 p.m. – Redman Rd., just north of Van Lare Rd. in Sodus</p><p>In the unlikely event of an actual emergency, the sirens would sound to alert the public to tune in to a local Emergency Alert System (EAS) radio or television station for important information. These stations are listed in the emergency planning calendar mailed to households and businesses in the 10-mile Emergency Planning Zone around R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant. </p><p>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.<br></p>http://www.exeloncorp.com/newsroom/ginna-to-test-two-public-notification-system-sirens7/21/2016 7:00:00 PM
Exelon Says New York Rules Could Preserve Plants, Open Door for Hundreds of Millions in InvestmentExelon Says New York Rules Could Preserve Plants, Open Door for Hundreds of Millions in Investment<p><strong>CHICAGO</strong> —Gov. Andrew Cuomo's draft clean energy plan for New York would save thousands of high-paying jobs and spur hundreds of millions of dollars in short-term investments in energy infrastructure in upstate New York, Exelon Corp. said today in response to a Department of Public Service staff paper released Friday.</p><p>The proposals in the paper, if approved, would keep Exelon's upstate nuclear plants running as the state transitions to a 50 percent zero-carbon energy standard by 2030.</p><p>"Without Gov. Cuomo's leadership and the development of the Clean Energy Standard, our units at Nine Mile Point and Ginna in Upstate New York are in jeopardy of closure," said Joseph Dominguez, executive vice president for Governmental and Regulatory Affairs and Public Policy, Exelon. "These units employ 1,400 full-time workers with an annual payroll of $266 million, pay over $47 million annually in local taxes and support thousands of indirect jobs across New York through part-time employment and the purchase of goods and services. We make the zero-carbon electricity that is always available to meet our customers' needs on the hottest or coldest days of the year.  </p><p>"If the program is approved, we will immediately reinvest approximately $200 million in the plants in the spring and continue to operate. If the program is not approved, we need to go in a different direction," Dominguez said. </p><p>The two plants produce 2.4 billion watts of zero-carbon electricity continuously, most of which would have to be replaced by carbon-producing generators if the plants cease to operate. The loss of the plants would effectively eliminate the so-called "bridge" to a low-carbon energy future for New York and make achieving the state's environmental goals difficult or impossible, Dominguez said.</p><p>Exelon also confirmed that it has entered into discussions with Entergy Corporation to buy the Fitzpatrick Nuclear Plant in Oswego, New York.  </p><p>"With Governor Cuomo's leadership, we have an opportunity to rescue and continue to operate a critical power plant that supports thousands of skilled men and women," said Chris Crane, Exelon president and CEO. "The proposed CES program, if approved, will give us the confidence to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in Fitzpatrick in January to refuel the plant and upgrade systems needed to reverse the shutdown decision."</p><p>A New York Public Service Commission's analysis released April 18 said that Fitzpatrick produces more than $1 billion in economic value annually to New York. An independent study published by The Brattle Group in December found similar economic benefits.  </p><p>"We know how important saving Fitzpatrick is to New York families and businesses," Crane said.  "And we look forward to working with Entergy, the state, the local communities and business leaders, and our partners in labor to save the plant."</p><p><strong>Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information</strong></p><p>This release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that are subject to risks and uncertainties.

Exelon Notifies Grid Operator Of Plans To Close Quad Cities Exelon Notifies Grid Operator Of Plans To Close Quad Cities <div><strong>CHICAGO</strong>— Exelon Generation has formally notified grid operator PJM Interconnection of its plans to retire the Quad Cities Generating Station on June 1, 2018. This is the latest of several procedural notifications Exelon is required to make prior to retiring the Quad Cities and Clinton nuclear stations in Illinois. Last month, Exelon Generation similarly notified the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.</div><div><br></div><div>On June 2, Exelon announced plans to close the Quad Cities and Clinton stations on June 1, 2018, and June 1, 2017, respectively, given the lack of progress on Illinois energy legislation. The stations have lost a combined $800 million in the past seven years, despite being two of Exelon’s best-performing plants. </div><div><br></div><div>“We continue to work with all stakeholders to ensure the retirement of these plants is carried out responsibly, safely and with consideration to the employees and the communities in which the plants operate,” said Chris Crane, Exelon president and CEO. “We are committed to being transparent at every step in the process, and that includes giving grid operators ample time to prepare for the loss of these units.”</div><div><br></div><div>Employees will safely operate Quad Cities until the retirement date, with staff transitions expected within six months after retirement. Exelon employs nearly 900 workers at Quad Cities. Clinton, which operates in the MISO market, employs approximately 700 workers. Exelon plans to formally notify MISO of its plans to close Clinton later this year.</div><div><br></div><div>The Quad Cities and Clinton stations support approximately 4,200 direct and indirect jobs and produce more than $1.2 billion in economic activity annually. A state report found that closing the plants would increase wholesale energy costs for the region by $439 million to $645 million annually. </div><div><br></div><div>Exelon will continue to work with stakeholders on passing the Next Generation Energy Plan that is critical to the state’s environment and economy. While these needed policy reforms may come too late to save Quad Cities and Clinton, Exelon is committed to working with policymakers and other stakeholders to advance an all-of-the-above plan that would promote zero-carbon energy, create and preserve clean-energy jobs, establish a more equitable utility rate structure and give customers more control over their bills.</div><div><br></div><div><strong>Cautionary Statements Regarding Forward-Looking Information</strong></div><div>This press release contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, that are subject to risks and uncertainties.
