Illinois' Six Nuclear Energy Facilities at Full Power During Record Cold SnapIllinois' Six Nuclear Energy Facilities at Full Power During Record Cold Snap<p><strong>WARRENVILLE, Ill.</strong> — While temperatures plunged to record-breaking lows during an unusual November cold snap early this week, Exelon Generation's six Illinois nuclear plants operated at full power, producing enough power to keep 11 million homes and businesses safe and warm. Ten of the fleet’s 11 reactors ran at nearly 100 percent output levels throughout the week, providing schools, hospitals, businesses and residences the reliable, carbon-free electricity needed to keep heaters running. Dresden Station Unit 2 is currently shut down for a refueling outage.</p><p>"Even during this unseasonably cold weather, our Illinois fleet’s performance further demonstrates the reliability and resiliency of nuclear power in any kind of weather,” said Exelon’s Chief Nuclear Officer Bryan Hanson. “We are dedicated to being online when customers need us most, no matter what Mother Nature throws at us at any time of year.” </p><p>Exelon Generation’s Illinois nuclear fleet has proven its mettle time and again during Midwest deep freezes. Throughout record deep freezes earlier this year, the Illinois nuclear fleet operated at 100 percent around the clock. A year prior, the fleet recorded a near-perfect reliability rate, operating 97.6 percent of the time. And during the 2014 Polar Vortex, the plants were critical to meeting electricity demand, as coal piles froze and natural gas supplies were re-routed for home heating. </p><p>Winter resiliency and reliability requires year-long planning, preparation and maintenance. Exelon Generation workers spend months ensuring that backup generators and spare equipment is ready for inclement weather. This fall, operators and maintenance personnel inspected freeze protection systems, tested electrical equipment, and properly aligned plant systems to prepare all Exelon Generation facilities for sub-zero temperatures, icy conditions and heavy snowfall.  These efforts are in addition to the many equipment upgrades and "winter readiness" maintenance activities performed during refueling outages.<br></p> 9:00:00 PM
Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Celebrates Five Decades of Carbon-Free, Reliable Power and Community StewardshipGinna Nuclear Power Plant Celebrates Five Decades of Carbon-Free, Reliable Power and Community Stewardship<p><strong>ONTARIO, N.Y.</strong> – Exelon Generation’s R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is celebrating a strong record of reliable carbon-free power generation and community stewardship since the first nuclear reaction took place in Ontario, New York 50 years ago on November 9, 1969.  </p><p>The plant has been generating enough carbon-free electricity to power approximately 500,000 homes and businesses while preventing the release of more than two million tons of carbon dioxide annually—the equivalent of taking approximately 400,000 cars off the road. More than 1,000 tons of nitrogen oxide and 1,040 tons of sulfur dioxide also are avoided each year. </p><p>“Nuclear energy remains a reliable source of zero-emissions energy, providing electricity 24 hours a day, seven days a week through all weather conditions,” said R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Site Vice President, Paul Swift. “Last year, New York’s four nuclear units provided more than 40 percent of the state’s emissions-free electricity while avoiding 16 million tons of carbon annually—that’s equivalent to 3.3 million cars running the roads.” </p><p>In addition to serving the region as a source of carbon-free energy, the site has been a strong corporate citizen, supporting education initiatives, environmental and conservation projects, and numerous charitable organizations. The site’s annual giving campaign is currently underway and has already collected more than $150,000 in donations that will support the communities where employees live and work.   </p><p>“Exelon Generation is an incredible community partner,” said State Senator Pamela Helming. “I am proud to work with them and celebrate their contributions to the region.  As one of the largest employers in Wayne County, they continue to invest in their most valuable resource – their employees -- and are committed to providing the reliable energy that keeps the lights on in our homes and powers our economy.”</p><p>Exelon Generation’s investments in state-of-the art technology and maintenance help ensure R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant generates carbon-free power more than 95 percent of the time, making it one of New York’s most efficient and reliable power generators. The plant achieved its highest-ever capacity factor in 2016, reliably generating electricity 99.6 percent of the year.</p><p>“Meticulous care, investments and upgrades have resulted in a resilient plant that can serve the region with clean energy well into the future,” said Ginna’s Plant Manager, Daren Blankenship. “Ginna has more online hours than any nuclear plant in the world and we proudly look forward to maintaining that record.”  </p><p>In addition to environmental and reliability benefits, R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant provides significant economic stimulus in the region, directly employing hundreds of people and adding another 800 to 1,000 jobs during bi-annual refueling outages. A 2015 NEI study found that the plant’s operation generates $358 million of annual economic output statewide and $450 million annually across the United States. </p><p>“Over the decades, Ginna has been such an integral part of our region,” said Assemblyman Brian Manktelow. “This long-enduring operation, its employees and its collaborative efforts with Wayne County are very much appreciated."</p><p>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. <br></p> 8:00:00 PM
