Limerick Generating Station (LGS) welcomed two of its newest elected representatives to the site in early January. Newly sworn in Pennsylvania State Rep. Joe Ciresi (D-Montgomery) and State Rep. Danielle Friel Otten (D-Chester) along with their staff took a day to learn more about the operations and community outreach of LGS.
Ciresi and Otten were also joined by Pennsylvania Nuclear Energy Caucus member, State Representative Tom Mehaffie (R-Dauphin), who provided insight on the issues facing the Commonwealth's nuclear fleet. Mehaffie and site personnel discussed the ways Limerick provides economic and environmental benefits to the community.
All three lawmakers then took a tour of the plant to learn more about how Pennsylvania's largest source of zero-carbon is generated. The tour showcased the control room for units 1 and 2 as well as the turbine deck where the massive generator is located.
The day concluded with meeting site employees and learned more about the 2,00 volunteer hours and more than $300,000 that are contributed to the community annually.
