Unit I began commercial operation on February 1, 1986. Unit II is scheduled for completion in the early 1990s. When completed, this nuclear-fueled plant will produce more than 2,000,000 kilowatts of electric power. Two large hyperbolic cooling towers have been designed to preserve the thermal water quality of the Schuylkill River.
