The R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant's single reactor produces 576 megawatts of zero-emissions energy: enough carbon-free electricity to power about 500,000 homes. The plant is named after Robert Emmett Ginna (pronounced guh-NAY), who helped modify the Atomic Energy Act to permit research into using nuclear energy for electricity.
