DRESDEN NUCLEAR POWER STATION, UNIT 2: NRC Issues Final Environmental Impact Statement for Peach Bottom Subsequent License Renewal

Local Government

By Press release submission | Jan 28, 2020


Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on Jan. 27.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff members have issued the Final Supplemental

Environmental Impact Statement on Exelon Generation Company’s application for an additional 20

years of operation for Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, Units 2 and 3. The NRC has concluded

the potential environmental impacts are not so great that preserving the option of license renewal for

energy-planning decision makers would be unreasonable.

Exelon submitted the Peach Bottom subsequent license renewal application on

July 10, 2018. The subsequent license renewal process determines whether an operating reactor can

extend its license for an additional 20 years (initial license renewals add 20 years to a reactor’s

original 40-year license). The application, excluding proprietary details, is available on the NRC

website. In addition, a copy of the final EIS will be available for public inspection at the Whiteford

Branch Library, 2407 Whiteford Road in Whiteford, Md.
