MORRIS, Ill. (Dec. 12, 2016) – Dresden Unit 2 achieved full-power operation at 4:55 p.m. Sunday following planned maintenance on piping associated with the unit’s steam cycle. This work could not be completed while the unit was online.

Dresden Generating Station is approximately 60 miles southwest of Chicago. The station’s two nuclear energy units can produce a total of more than 1,800 megawatts at full power – enough carbon-free electricity to power more than 1.2 million typical homes. Dresden Unit 1, which began commercial operation in 1960 and was retired in 1978, has been designated a Nuclear Historic Landmark by the American Nuclear Society.
