Braidwood Hosts Successful State of the Plant Event

 

Braidwood Mayor Jim Vehrs and Reed-Custer School District Superintendent Mark Mitchell both thanked Braidwood Station senior leaders for being excellent community partners. 

Their comments were among the highlights at the station's annual State of the Plant breakfast Dec. 3 at the Braidwood Training Building. 

Braidwood Plant Manager John Keenan (pictured above) presented to approximately 20 community stakeholders about the impact Exelon and Braidwood Station have on the surrounding communities. 

Mr. Keenan discussed the two refueling outages held at the plant in 2018 and the more than 2,600 additional workers it brought to the community, giving local businesses a much-needed boost.

"We all see the additional traffic and higher sales tax revenue during (refuel outages)," Mayor Vehrs said. 

The station also highlighted the many public outreach and charitable contributions made each year in the community, specifically Fishing for a Cure, which raised $55,000 last year for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
