Limerick Generating Station Unit 1 returned to full power at approximately 2 a.m. EDT Sunday following repairs to an electrical system on the non-nuclear side of the plant.
Limerick Unit 1 was manually taken offline by operators last week when an electrical malfunction caused the nuclear power plant’s generator cooling pump to shut down. There was no risk to the public and no injuries associated with the event.
Limerick Generating Station is 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. With both units at full power, the site can produce enough carbon-free electricity for approximately 2 million homes.
