Byron generating station back online after refueling, maintenance

Posted:
BYRON (WREX) -

Exelon's Unit Two Generating station in Byron is back online for the next year and a half.

The unit at the nuclear reactor was shut down Sept. 29 for planned refueling and maintenance.

Over 2,000 Exelon workers and contractors worked to allow the unit to operate for another 18-month cycle.

At full power, the two generating units provide electricity for about 2.3 million homes.
