Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Hosts Community Information Night on August 5
Annual Event Helps Inform Residents and Engage Community in Plant Operations
ONTARIO, NY (July 16, 2014) – Ever wonder how nuclear power is generated or how a nuclear plant operates? 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 is safely harnessing nuclear energy in Wayne County to power 400,000 area homes. The free event will be held outside Ginna’s Training Center on Tuesday, August 5 from 4-7 p.m.
Plant employees will be on hand to educate visitors on 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. Informational handouts and refreshments will be provided.
“We look forward to hosting our first Community Information Night,” said Ginna Site Vice President, Joe Pacher. “We want our stakeholders to see how we work hard every day to generate clean and reliable energy while protecting the plant, our workers, our neighbors and the environment.”
Please RSVP for this event no later than July 25 by sending an email to Maria.Hudson@exeloncorp.com or by calling 585-771-5402.
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, hosting tours, visiting area schools, appearing at community events and financially supporting dozens of civic organizations.
