Additional Details:
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. In the foreground is the information center which contains a solar energy system and a garden for environmental monitoring. The station is owned and operated by Philadelphia Electric Company.
