Calvert Cliffs Refueling Outage Powers Local EconomyCalvert Cliffs Refueling Outage Powers Local Economy<p>Operators at Exelon Generation’s Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant removed Unit 1 from service just after midnight Sunday to begin a planned refueling outage, capping a run of 702 consecutive days of power generation for the unit.  This reliable operation enabled the station to generate more than 15 million MWh of carbon-free electricity for customers. That amount of clean energy has the emissions avoidance equivalent of taking more than 2.3 million passenger cars off the road for one year. <br></p><p>Work completed during the refueling outage will help the unit deliver zero-emission, reliable power to almost a million homes and businesses during the next two-year operating cycle. <br></p><p>To support the refueling outage, approximately 1,000 additional workers will travel to Calvert for several weeks, filling nearby hotels to capacity and increasing foot traffic in restaurants and shops at a time when tourism is usually slow.<br></p><p>“The refueling outage at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant is a welcomed addition to our local economy each and every year,” said Kelly McConkey, President, Calvert County, Maryland Board of County Commissioners. “We welcome the skilled workforce to our community to support Calvert Cliffs and greatly appreciate the influx of spending at our local business establishments during the winter months.”<br></p><p>While the unit is offline, technicians will replace nearly one-third of the reactor’s fuel and perform more than 7,500 inspections, tests, maintenance activities and modifications. Many of the tasks performed during the outage cannot be accomplished while the unit is online. <br></p><p>“We are proud to produce almost a third of Maryland’s power with, safe, reliable, carbon-free nuclear generation,” said Calvert Cliffs Site Vice President Mark Flaherty. “These investments in state-of-the art equipment and new technologies will help ensure safe, reliable operations for years to come.”  <br></p><p>Calvert Cliffs is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County and is Maryland’s only nuclear energy facility. The station is home to two pressurized water reactors capable of generating more than 1,800 megawatts combined, providing approximately 80 percent of Maryland’s clean energy and powering more than 30 percent of all homes and businesses in the state. <br></p> 2:00:00 PM
LaSalle Generating Station Refueling Outage Powers the CommunityLaSalle Generating Station Refueling Outage Powers the Community<p>Operators at Exelon Generation’s LaSalle Generating Station removed the Unit 1 generator from service early this morning to begin a planned refueling outage. Work completed during the nuclear plant’s outage will help deliver reliable, carbon-free electricity to Illinois customers during the next two-year operating cycle.</p><p>To support the work, the station will use the talents and expertise of more than 1,000 additional workers, many of whom travel to LaSalle County from outside the area. For several months preceding and following the outage, the influx of workers provides a significant boost to the local economy.</p><p>“When the extra workers come to LaSalle Station for the refueling outage, it means additional business for our community,” said Jeff Hettrick, executive director of the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce. “Ottawa and LaSalle County appreciate the additional workers who take advantage of all the services we have to offer, whether it’s our restaurants, hotels or shopping.”</p><p>During the outage, technicians will complete testing, maintenance and modifications that can only be done when the station is not generating electricity. LaSalle Unit 2 will continue to operate at 100 percent power while Unit 1 is offline.</p><p>“It is our goal here at LaSalle Station to continue operating at world-class levels of safety and reliability,” said John Washko, LaSalle Generating Station site vice president. “The work completed during our refueling outages helps us meet that goal and enables us to power a cleaner and brighter future for the communities we serve.”</p><p>LaSalle Generating Station is a nuclear power facility located about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, Ill. At full power, the facility’s two reactors produce more than 2,200 megawatts of carbon free electricity, enough to power 2.3 million typical homes.<br></p> 2:00:00 PM
