The Illinois Nuclear Renewal Project

The ICEC has launched the Illinois Nuclear Renewal Project to gather support for license renewal for Braidwood and Byron Nuclear Generating Stations. We are building an advocacy network of local officials, business and civic leaders, as well as area citizens to voice support for the positive impacts these facilities have on the state.

We are encouraging participation in public hearings, and sharing positive perspectives on the benefits of nuclear from a wide variety of advocates. Learn more by clicking the drop down below, and sign up to show your support!

  • As part of its close oversight of nuclear power plants, the federal government undertakes a thorough review of nuclear plant operations and impacts when evaluating license renewal.

    Part of the license renewal process is a review of local impacts of nuclear power plants. The Byron and Braidwood plants have had a tremendously positive impact locally and across Illinois, and the ICEC is working to rally support for these vital components of our energy infrastructure.

    Together, Byron and Braidwood plants…

    • Employ nearly 2,000 highly skilled workers and support thousands of additional jobs
    • Generate over $2 billion in economic benefit to the state of Illinois
    • Provide enough electricity to power nearly 4 million homes
    • Produce no greenhouse gas or carbon emissions
    • Operate safely and consistently, frequently upgrading efficiency, security and technology
    • Work constantly with public safety agencies to maintain emergency response readiness

    Community leaders, business and labor, elected officials and civic groups are rallying in support of license renewal.
