Nuke Plant: Want To Know How Power's Generated?
Exelon's Limerick nuclear power plant will host an information night on Thursday.
Ever wonder how nuclear power is generated or how a nuclear plant operates? Attend Limerick Generating Station’s Community Information Night to find the answers to these questions and many more. You’ll also see firsthand how Limerick Generating Station is safely harnessing nuclear power in the Tri-County Area to power two million homes. The free event will be held at Limerick’s Learning Center on Thursday, May 24th from 4:30 p.m-7:30 p.m.
Station employees will be on hand to educate visitors on station operations; site maintenance; engineering practices; environmental stewardship; industrial safety; radiological safety; site security; emergency preparedness; license renewal, and much more. Visitors can also tour the plant’s main control room simulator, which is used to train reactor operators.
The event is family friendly - children can try on night-vision goggles, obtain a souvenir Limerick ‘badge’ and wear various safety gear. Informational handouts and refreshments will be provided.
“We look forward to Community Information Night every year,” said Limerick Site Vice President, Russ Kearney. “We want our stakeholders and residents to see learn about nuclear power operations, and see how we work hard every day to generate clean and reliable power while protecting the plant, our workers, our neighbors and the environment.”
To ensure the safety of the plant and our guests, the station’s vehicle checkpoint will not be open to Community Information Night guests. Visitors should enter the plant at the intersection of Evergreen and Sanatoga Roads and park in the upper parking lot, which is located just past the cooling towers. A bus will transport visitors to the learning center. If you have questions, please contact Dana Melia at (610)-718-3025 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community Information Night is an important part of Limerick Generating Station’s annual public information and outreach campaign, designed to engage and educate the public on station operations. Limerick employees continue to be an active part of the Pottstown area by volunteering, hosting tours, visiting area schools, appearing at community events and financially supporting dozens of civic organizations. Each year, the station contributes more than $400,000 to support various regional charities and community organizations.
