Less than a month after a nearby nuclear power plant had reactor issues and within a year of renewals for three NJ plants, the NRC has put on hold all requests for new reactor construction as well as license extensions for currently operating plants.
The Red Cross has received a significant donation for its Red Cross House at 40th and Chestnut Streets in West Philadelphia.
A spokesperson for plant owner Exelon, says the reactor shut down, automatically, after the turbine in Unit one tripped offline.
Exelon, the parent company of PECO, says one of its two reactors at the Limerick nuclear power plant has shutdown.
After a year of review, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission has given Exelon permission to increase generating capacity by 1.65 percent.
