LaSalle Unit 2 Returns to Service

MARSEILLES, Ill. (June 10, 2017) — Operators returned LaSalle Generating Station Unit 2 to full power Saturday following repairs to a pump that circulates water through the reactor.
Operators removed the nuclear unit from service Tuesday to allow technical experts to make repairs. The unit came back online Friday at 5:50 a.m. with power ascension completed today.
At full power, LaSalle Station’s two generating units produce more than 2,300 megawatts of carbon-free electricity, enough to power more than 2 million typical American homes. LaSalle Station is located about 75 miles southwest of Chicago near Marseilles, Ill.
