 ​​​​BRACEVILLE, Ill. (Aug. 17) -Ever wonder how a nuclear power plant operates? Join us for Braidwood Generating Station's Community Information Night on Aug. 27, and you'll see firsthand how Braidwood operators safely harness the power of the atom to provide electricity to more than two million homes and businesses. The free event will be held at Braidwood's Services and Training Center from 4 to 7 p.m. The training center is located at 36400 S. Essex Road, Wilmington, Ill.
Station employees will be available to educate visitors on station operations, engineering practices, environmental stewardship, industrial safety, radiological safety, site security, emergency preparedness and much more. Visitors can also tour the plant's main control room simulator, which is used to train reactor operators. There will be plenty of food and attendees can register to win an Apple TV.
 "Community Information Night is a great opportunity to learn more about a working nuclear station and meet the men and women who are dedicated to running it safely and reliably," said Braidwood Site Vice President Mark Kanavos. "We look forward to hosting this event each year and sharing our commitment to nuclear safety and environmental stewardship with our neighbors."
Braidwood Generating Station is approximately 60 miles southwest of Chicago. The station's two nuclear energy units can produce a total of more than 2,300 megawatts of carbon free electricity - enough to power more than 2 million typical homes.
