R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant

Nuclear: An Ideal Foundation for Our Clean Energy Future

The R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant's single reactor can produce up to 576 megawatts (MW) of zero-emissions energy, enough carbon-free electricity to power about 500,000 homes. The plant, located in Ontario, New York, is named after Robert Emmett Ginna (pronounced guh-NAY), who helped modify the Atomic Energy Act to permit research into using nuclear energy for electricity.

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 May 19, 2004. With license renewal complete, R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant is licensed through 2029.

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.
