Calvert Cliffs 3 Debate
The Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant, which is owned & operated by Constellation Energy, has two 2700 MW nuclear reactors. In 2000, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) extended the facility's license for 20 years. In 2005, Unistar Nuclear Energy, jointly owned by Constellation and Electricite de France announced that it will build a third reactor (US-Evolutionary Power Reactor). The third reactor would help address the need for more baseload, generating power in the Mid-Atlantic region. This debate, held on October 22, 2009 at UMBC features Johanna Neumann, State Director for Maryland PIRG and J. Scott Peterson, Nuclear Energy Institute's Vice President of Communications.
