FES Files Deactivation Notice for Nuclear Plants

Thursday, March 29, 2018
4,048 Megawatts of Electricity Generating Capacity to Retire by 2021
 
FirstEnergy Solutions (FES) today notified PJM Interconnection (PJM), the regional transmission organization, that it will sell or deactivate FENOC’s three nuclear plants in Ohio and Pennsylvania during the next three years. Plant closures are subject to review by PJM for reliability impacts if any.
 
The plants will be retired at the end of their next refueling cycle as follows:
 
  • Davis-Besse (908 MW) by May 31, 2020
  • Beaver Valley (1,872 MW) – Unit 1 by May 31, 2021, and Unit 2 by October 31, 2021
  • Perry (1,268 MW) by May 31, 2021
The FES decision comes following FERC’s failure to act on the Grid Resiliency Pricing Rule and the slow progress at the state level to enact legislation that would provide the plants with financial support.
