The station has two units, unit 1 and the 1,140-MW unit 2. The unit 2 at the station continued to run at full power on April 9, 2009, NRC said.

One MW powers around 800 homes in New York.

The NRC has renewed the plant’s original 40-year operating license in 2006 for both units for additional 20 years, or until 2029 and 2046, respectively.

Constellation Energy owns all of unit 1 and operates the station for its owners. Constellation Energy (82%) and Long Island Power Authority (18%) own unit 2.
