Exelon files to deactivate the Byron reactors
Exelon on June 16 filed with grid operator PJM Interconnection to deactivate the two Byron reactors in Illinois. The move came one day after the Illinois Senate adjourned without reaching an agreement on a comprehensive energy package that would have provided nearly $700 million to keep Byron’s reactors, as well as Exelon’s Dresden and Braidwood nuclear power plants, in operation. (In August of 2020, Exelon announced that it would close the economically challenged Byron and Dresden facilities in the fall of 2021 without some form of state aid to provide compensation for their clean power.) The state’s House of Representatives also adjourned earlier this week without taking up the bill.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) conducts research, development, and demonstration projects for the benefit of the public in the United States and internationally. As an independent, non profit organization for public interest energy and environmental research, we focus on electricity generation, delivery, and use in collaboration with the electricity sector, its stakeholders and others to enhance the quality of life by making electric power safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible. Through global collaboration with nuclear power plant operators, regulatory agencies, and other research organizations, EPRI develops cost-effective technologies, technical guidance, and knowledge transfer tools that help maximize the value of existing nuclear assets and inform the deployment of new nuclear technology.
Join one of the manned informal booth times slots below. Talk directly to recruiters from EPRI and ask questions about the organization and positions available.
