|Vistra Corporation recently announced the pursuit of a 20-year license extension for Comanche Peak Nuclear Station’s reactors. Comanche Peak’s two nuclear plants, located in Glen Rose, Texas, are of the 4-Loop Westinghouse design reactors. They have a combined output capacity of 2,425 MW (megawatts). |
Unit 1 began commercial operation in August of 1990 and Unit 2 in August of 1993. Their original 40-year licenses expire in February 2030 (Unit 1) and February 2033 (Unit 2).
Comanche Peak contributes greatly to their community with greater than $30 million in state and local taxes, providing reliable power to Texans as one of the lowest-cost and highest-performing nuclear power plants in the U.S., while generating enough electricity to power 1.2 million homes under normal conditions and 480,000 during periods of peak demand. They have a proud history of safety, dependability, and operational excellence. GTTSi is proud to serve them as one of our valued clients.
