Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station

Nuclear: An Ideal Foundation for Our Clean Energy Future

Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station Units 2 and 3 can generate a combined 2,770 megawatts (MW) of zero-emissions energy, enough carbon-free electricity to power 2.7 million homes. The plant, which is located in Delta, Pennsylvania, recently completed an $87 million project that upgraded major equipment to enhance safety, reliability, and power output. Constellation owns 50 percent of Peach Bottom and operates the plant, and PSEG owns the remaining 50 percent share.

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 an initial license renewal application for this facility to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) in 2001, which was approved on May 7, 2003. In 2016, the company applied for a second license renewal, which was approved on March 6, 2020. With license renewal complete, Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station Unit 2 is licensed through 2053, and Unit 3 is licensed through 2054.

Safety is Constellation’s first and most critical 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.
