2.1.2 Nuclear

Maryland is home to one nuclear power facility, Exelon’s Calvert Cliffs plant. In March 2000, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved a 20-year extension to the original operating licenses for Units 1 and 2. The units’ licenses will expire in 2034 and 2036, respectively. This 1,829 MW facility represents approximately 13 percent of the State’s total electricity generation capacity and accounted for about 40 percent of the State’s total generation in 2015.

More information on Calvert Cliffs is included in Section 4.5.2.
