Byron nuclear plant at full power following refueling shut down


The Byron Nuclear Generating Station is ready to take on the demands of winter.

Exelon completed its refueling and maintenance outage, which started about three weeks ago. 

The second unit turbine was taken off line while thousands of tech experts were brought in to make sure the reactors can run non-stop all winter long.

The plant powers more than 2 million homes and businesses in the area.
