Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Hosts Community Information Night July 31

Learn how Exelon Generation produces safe, clean, reliable energy; test drive a zero-emissions vehicle

ONTARIO, N.Y. – Ever wonder how nuclear power is generated or how a nuclear power plant works? If you attend Ginna’s Community Information Night, you’ll find answers to these questions and many more. You’ll also see firsthand how the plant produces carbon-free nuclear energy in Wayne County to power nearly 500,000 area homes. The free event will be held outside Ginna’s Training Center on Tuesday, July 31 from 4-8 p.m. 

Plant employees will be on hand to talk with visitors on Ginna’s operations, site maintenance, engineering practices, environmental stewardship, radiological safety, emergency preparedness and much more. Visitors can also tour the plant’s control room simulator, which is used for training reactor operators. 

This year’s event will also feature an electric car ride and drive event. Test drives will be available on a first-come, first-served basis with a valid driver’s license. Refreshments will be provided. Members of the public may register online at http://ginnacommunitynight.eventbrite.com

Community Information Night is an important part of Ginna’s annual public information and outreach campaign, designed to engage and educate the public on plant operations. Throughout the year, Ginna employees are active in the community; volunteering, visiting area schools, speaking at community events and financially supporting dozens of civic and charitable organizations.

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.
