James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant

Nuclear: An Ideal Foundation for Our Clean Energy Future

The James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant in Oswego, New York, can generate up to 842 megawatts (MW) of zero-emissions energy, enough carbon-free electricity to power 800,000 homes. The plant was named for James Anthony FitzPatrick, who was chairman of the New York Power Authority from 1963 to 1977.

U.S. nuclear energy facilities are initially licensed to operate for 40 years and a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) rule allows licensees to apply for extensions of up to 20 years after the initial 40-year term. Constellation submitted a license renewal application for this facility to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which was approved on September 8, 2008. With license renewal complete, James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant is licensed through 2034.

Safety is Constellation’s first and highest obligation. Nuclear power plants are among the best-protected private sector facilities in America, with monitoring and inspections by plant owners, local officials, and the federal government.
