U.S. Nuclear Power Experiencing Revival of Sorts

February 23, 2023--Written by Daniel Graeber for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--Utility company Constellation Energy Corporation (Baltimore, Maryland) said two nuclear power plants in Illinois will get overhauled through $800 million in investments, an overhaul it said wouldn't be possible without federal support.

Constellation said it was investing in the equipment necessary to add another 135 megawatts of power to the Braidwood and Byron nuclear power stations in Illinois. The company claims that's enough carbon-free power to meet the demand from 100,000 average homes, is the equivalent of 216 average wind turbines and abates the equivalent emissions of 171,000 gas-powered vehicles on an annual basis.
