Unit 1 offline for planned maintenance at La Salle power plant

Unit 1 from Exelon's La Salle County Generating Station in rural Marseilles was removed from service at about 7:53 a.m. Friday for planned valve maintenance for summer operations, according to a press release from the company. This work cannot be completed while the unit is online and will not affect Unit 2 operations. At full power, the facility’s dual reactors produce more than 2,300 megawatts, enough electricity for more than two million homes and businesses.
