Nine Mile Point Nuclear Station is located north of Syracuse in Scriba, N.Y., and has two boiling water reactors that provide more than 1,900 megawatts of electricity to more than 1 million homes. Constellation Energy purchased Nine Mile Point in 2001 from Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation and other utilities.
Constellation Energy Nuclear Group, a joint venture between Exelon Corporation and EDF, owns 100 percent of Unit 1 and 82 percent of Unit 2. Long Island Power Authority owns 18 percent of Unit 2. 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.
Nine Mile Point keeps more than half of its 900 acres, much of which is environmentally rich wetlands, in its natural state, allowing vegetation and wildlife to thrive. Deer, fox, turkey, rabbit, and raccoon feed and reproduce in undisturbed habitats on the site.
The plant is also the first nuclear power facility in the U.S. to be certified for meeting the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) voluntary environmental management systems standard. This certification is a clear indication that Nine Mile Point has taken a leadership position in the environmental area. The station has maintained certification for more than 10 years.
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.
