With all the bad news so far in 2020, this is actually good news.

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Exelon Generation announced today that it intends to retire its Byron Generating Station and Dresden Generating Station in fall 2021, resulting in the loss of four nuclear generation units that together supply clean, zero-emissions energy to more than four million homes and businesses in northern Illinois. Byron, located just outside Byron, Ill., will close in September 2021, and Dresden, located in Morris, Ill., will close in November 2021.

Good news unless they replace the lost power with the coal or gas-generated version. At the rate forests are disappearing, CO2 is the biggest long-term threat.

Byron Nuclear Power Plant Exelon_-8741436202337088736
BYRON, Ill. (WTVO) – A stateline community celebrated with residents and legislators that helped to save the Byron Nuclear Generating Station.

The bleachers were crowded at the Byron High School Stadium on Saturday, with state representatives and senators being present as well. Organizers said that it was a way to thank legislators for their efforts in passing the Clean Energy Bill, as well as celebrate the advocacy that community members, local businesses and school officials had in getting the word out about saving the plant.
