Ginna Nuclear Power Plant Hosts Community Information Night August 9

Annual Event Helps Engage Community and Inform Residents of Plant Operations

ONTARIO, NY – Ever wonder how nuclear power is generated or how a nuclear plant operates? If you attend Ginna’s Community Information Night, you’ll find answers to these questions and many more. You’ll also see firsthand how the plant is safely harnessing nuclear energy in Wayne County to power 500,000 area homes. The free event will be held outside Ginna’s Training Center on Tuesday, August 9 from 4-8 p.m. 

Plant employees will be on hand to educate visitors on operations, site maintenance, engineering practices, environmental stewardship, radiological safety, emergency preparedness and much more. Visitors can also tour the plant’s control room simulator, which is used for training reactor operators. Informational handouts and refreshments will be provided. Members of the public may register online at http://ginnacommunitynight.eventbrite.com.

Community Information Night is an important part of Ginna’s annual public information and outreach campaign, designed to engage and educate the public on plant operations. Throughout the year, Ginna employees are active in the community; volunteering, hosting tours, visiting area schools, appearing at community events and financially supporting dozens of civic organizations.
 
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. The plant generates enough carbon-free electricity for nearly 500,000 homes.
