Posted by wlpo on February 2, 2015

It wasn’t a snow day for employees of the La Salle County Generating Station. Exelon says more than 2,000 people made it in to the nuclear plant Monday morning to work on the Unit two refueling outage. Unit one continues to produce power.

Megan Borchers of Exelon says it was a scheduled outage. The plant has two reactors. Each of the reactors must be shut down and refueled every two years.

Exelon says 1,400 supplemental workers are called in to do all that needs to get done during the outage
