MARSEILLES, Ill. (May 8, 2015) - Working hand in hand with local businesses, Exelon Generation and Jeremiah Joe, a popular coffee shop in downtown Ottawa, are teaming up to host a Community Information Night, which will showcase the robust operations of LaSalle County Generating Station. The event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 20.
"We take every opportunity to support local businesses," said LaSalle Site Vice President Pete Karaba. "If we can educate our neighbors about our safe and reliable operations during the process, it is a win-win."
LaSalle Station employees will talk about the multiple layers of safety systems, security enhancements, emergency preparedness and environmental stewardship programs at the station. In addition, information on the proposed Low Carbon Portfolio Standard legislation will be discussed.
Community Information Night is an important part of LaSalle Station's ongoing community outreach program, designed to engage and inform the public on station operations. Station employees are active in the community by volunteering, hosting tours, visiting area schools, appearing at community events and financially supporting dozens of civic organizations throughout the year.
Jeremiah Joe is located in 807 LaSalle Street in Ottawa. Coffee and refreshments will be served at the Community Information Night.
