Second Outage of 2020 Conducted with Enhanced Health and Safety Protocols to Ensure Employee and Community Safety During Refueling

LOWER ALLOWAYS CREEK, N.J., Oct. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- PSEG Nuclear's Salem Unit 1 entered its planned refueling and maintenance outage on Oct. 3, 2020, when operators safely removed the unit from the regional power grid. Salem 1 is one of three nuclear units operated by PSEG in Salem County, New Jersey. Collectively, the three nuclear units produce roughly 40% of the state's electricity and more than 90% of its carbon-free energy, making them a critical pillar of New Jersey's clean energy ambitions to achieve net-zero by 2050. A refueling and maintenance outage is a multi-week, comprehensive process involving thousands of inspections, surveillances and maintenance activities.
