Nuclear power plant in Pennsylvania returned to service

Exelon said the 852 MW Three Mile Island Unit 1 was returned to service Sept. 4 when operators connected the plant’s turbine generator to the regional power grid.

The nuclear power unit was taken offline on Aug. 22 to make repairs to a heater element on the plant’s pressurizer tank.  The heater element was replaced, inspected and tested.

Three Mile Island is about 12 miles south of Harrisburg, Pa.
