Exelon Says Nuke Plants’ Demise Put Off

(Springfield, IL) — Exelon’s nuclear plant in Clinton will keep humming for at least another year, though the company will continue to push for pricing changes. Exelon had threatened to shut down the reactors in Clinton, Byron, and Quad Cities. It’s demading lawmakers pass legislation giving the company the same clean-energy pricing breaks given to solar and wind generators. The company still wants the break, but says any decision on mothballing its nuclear fleet won’t be made for at least a year.
