DELTA, PA (June 2, 2017) — Think you have what it takes to operate a nuclear power plant? Attend Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station’s Community Information Night and find out! See firsthand how operators at Peach Bottom harness the power of uranium to generate safe, reliable power for more than two and a quarter million homes and businesses.
Enjoy an evening of food, fun and fission during Community Information Night on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. During the event, station employees will be on hand to educate visitors about nuclear energy, plant operations and current events in the nuclear industry. Learn about the station’s engineering practices, emergency preparedness, used fuel storage, safety, security, environmental stewardship and community outreach. Plus, if you have ever wanted to see the inside of a nuclear power station’s control room, you can tour the control room simulator, which is used to train and test reactor operators! Informational handouts will be provided and picnic fare will be served. This is a free, family-friendly event that will be held rain or shine.
“Our 860 employees take a great deal of pride in producing clean and reliable carbon-free energy. Community Information Night is a great opportunity for our community to come and take an inside look at how we do that here at Peach Bottom,” said Site Vice President Pat Navin. “It is always a fun event and we look forward to spending time with our neighbors and answering questions about nuclear energy.”
Visitors are asked to park in the station’s contractor parking lot at 1848 Lay Road. Buses will transport visitors to the training center.
