Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant (Calvert Cliffs) is located in Lusby, Md. Together, its two pressurized light water reactor units produce more than 1,700 megawatts of electricity, which power more than 1 million homes.
Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, a joint venture between Exelon Corporation and EDF, owns 100 percent of Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant. Exelon, through its subsidiaries, owns 50.01 percent of CENG and is the nation’s leading competitive energy provider, with operations in 47 states, the District of Columbia and Canada. EDF, through its subsidiaries, owns 49.99 percent of CENG and is developing strategies in North America in nuclear, renewables and trading.
Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant maintains a comprehensive land, forest management, and wildlife protection program, selectively harvesting and replanting trees and ground cover to maintain wildlife habitats where wild turkey and bobwhite quail flourish. We’ve enrolled 20 acres in the state’s Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program, a program to that plants trees and deep-rooted grasses to limit runoff and support wildlife. Since the plant has been in operation, the environment at and around the plant has been rigorously monitored and the monitoring results reported to the Maryland Department of the Environment and the EPA to ensure that we continue to preserve the quality of the air and water.
The safety and security of our community, employees and neighbors is the top priority. Since Sept. 11, 2001, the company has built upon a strong foundation to further enhance site security. Studies by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Progressive Policy Institute all confirm that nuclear power plants are the most secure facilities in the entire U.S. industrial infrastructure.
