CENG is a joint venture of EDF and Exelon Corporation. The partnership combines the experience of a leading supplier of energy products and services throughout the U.S., and the world’s leading owner-operator of nuclear energy facilities. CENG’s three nuclear energy facilities contribute 4.1 GW of generating capacity to help meet national demand for electricity.
At Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station (NMP), north of Syracuse in Scriba, New York, two boiling-water reactors jointly generate 1,757 MW, enough to power more than 1 million homes. In 2009, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) renewed NMP’s operating licenses for both units for 20-years.
Voluntary work, sponsorships and donations from the facility and its employees, help to power the local community. Environmental stewardship on the 900-acre site is strong: Nine Mile Point was the first U.S. nuclear energy facility to be ISO-certified for voluntary environmental management systems, a status maintained for the past 10 years.
Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant is based in Lusby, Maryland. Its two pressurized water reactors have been generating electricity for more than 1 million homes in the Mid-Atlantic region since 1975 and 1977 respectively.
The two units have an excellent safety and performance record and were the first nuclear facilities in the U.S. to receive 20-year license renewals from the NRC. The facility has been certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council since 1993 in recognition of the active involvement of its employee volunteers in wildlife habitat management projects.
Ginna’s 450 employees bring much more than financial benefits to the area, generously volunteering time and money to help local school and community projects.
The Ginna nuclear energy facility and its employees are one of the county’s biggest contributors to the United Way program. Commitment to environmental protection includes financial and volunteer support for a popular local Nature Conservancy protected site and nature trail.
