Made In Calvert: Nuclear Energy

CC

Located in Lusby, Calvert Cliffs, Maryland’s only nuclear power plant, produces nearly 1,850 megawatts of zero-emissions energy, enough carbon-free electricity to power more than one million homes per year and 84% of Maryland’s clean energy. 

This Constellation facility employs nearly 700 people and the workforce has strong ties to the community and philanthropic endeavors throughout Southern Maryland. Their employees demonstrate incredible leadership and passion for causes near and dear to their hearts, giving their time, their dollars, or both back to causes in our community through programs like Impact Leaders and Employee Giving. In addition, the facility pays approximately $23 million annually in taxes which support our schools, roads and other public services. 

U.S. nuclear energy facilities are initially licensed to operate for 40 years and a Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) rule allows licensees to apply for extensions of up to 20 years after the initial 40-year term. Constellation submitted a license renewal application for this facility to the U.S. NRC which was approved on March 23, 2000. With this approved license renewal, Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1 is licensed through 2034, and Unit 2 is licensed through 2036.
