    Exelon Corp. has announcedits intent to close the Byron Nuclear Station as early as this fall. Inoperation since 1985 and licensed until 2046, the plant’s two reactors generateenough electricity to power 2.3 million homes in northern Illinois. The ByronStation employs more than 700 on its 1,800 acre site, with an annual payroll ofnearly $100 million and annual property tax payments of $36 million, with theByron School District the recipient of the majority of those funds.

    Join Next Rockford members and guests for a timely discussion on this criticalissue. Speakers will include Paul Dempsey, Communications Manager for the ByronPlant; Superintendent Buster Barton of the Byron School District and SchoolBoard President Christine Lynde. They will discuss Exelon’s current financialchallenges in the power market, the impact of a closing on the Byron schoolsystem and the northern Illinois region, and the short-term and long-termfuture of the plant if it remains open.
