Clinton Power Plant Files Renewal Application

Constellation, the owner of Clinton's power plant, filed a license renewal application to keep the plant operating for another 20 years.


Leaders with Constellation filed the Nuclear Regulatory Commission application to extend the contract from 2027 to 2047. The plant, which provides over 13 million dollars in annual property taxes, education, and county services, produces carbon-free electricity to power over eight hundred thousand homes. The current contract for the plant could expire in April 2027 unless the Nuclear Regulatory Commission extends the contract. Brett Nauman is with Constellation Communications.



Renewing the plant could provide Illinois with an estimated 1-hundred 79 terawatt hours of additional carbon-free electricity over the contract's lifespan.


The 4 billion dollar plant, surrounded by Clinton Lake, employs over 5-hundred 30 people.
