Exelon (NYSE:EXC) has evidently completed the refueling and maintenance at the Calvert Cliffs 1 nuclear unit in Maryland.
The unit was removed from service on Feb. 15 for the planned outage. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) listed Calvert Cliffs 1 at 60% power generation early March 10. It had still be listed at zero power just one day before.
Calvert Cliffs is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County and is Maryland’s only nuclear energy facility. The station is home to two pressurized water reactors (PWRs) capable of generating 1,756 MW combined. Units 1 and 2 began commercial operation in 1975 and 1977, respectively.
Exelon is the operator and majority owner of the Calvert Cliffs nuclear complex in Maryland.
