Exelon Nuclear’s (NYSE:EXC) Limerick Generating Station Unit 1 resumed producing electricity today following a scheduled maintenance outage after successfully replacing a valve on the plant’s steam piping system. Station operators took the plant offline last weekend to replace the valve to ensure reliable operation of the plant. 

Limerick Unit 2 continued to operate during the outage. Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. With both units at full power, the site can produce enough carbon-free electricity for 2 million homes.
