After being shut down on March 20 for a main generator cooling pump malfunction, Unit 2 at Byron's Generating Station is back up and running.

The unit returned to full power at noon on March 23 after repairs were made to the pump. The pump, generator, and motor are all located on the non-nuclear side of the plant.
