Calvert Cliffs to Host Annual Community Information Night on October 25

Lusby, MD - October 24, 2019 – Ever wonder how nuclear power is generated or how a nuclear power plant works? Attend Calvert Cliffs’ Community Information Night to find answers to these questions and many more. You’ll also see firsthand how we safely produce clean, reliable energy in Calvert County to power more than 2 million homes.

Employees will be on hand to demonstrate plant operations in the control room simulator and safe maintenance practices through hands-on activities.  This year, the site will show-off a chemistry display highlighting the carbon-free energy Calvert Cliffs provides and the effects of greenhouse gas emissions on the environment.

“We look forward to welcoming our neighbors,” said Calvert Cliffs Site Vice President, Mark Flaherty. “Community Information Night is a wonderful time to interact with the community and show residents what we do here every day to generate safe, reliable, carbon-free power.”

Guests should be sure to visit the office facility parking lot for our Kids’ Zone including Trunk-or-Treat,  three-time D.C. Comedy Magician of the Year Reggie Rice and a live broadcast with Southern Maryland Radio.  Hardesty Haven also will provide food for guests throughout the event.

This free event will be held at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant on October 25 from 5-8 p.m.  Visitors are asked to bring donations of non-perishable food items for End Hunger Calvert County or a cash donation to United Way of Calvert County.  Registration for the event is required for admittance; visit https://2019ccnppcommunitynight.eventbrite.com to register.

Calvert Cliffs is located on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Calvert County and is Maryland’s only nuclear energy facility.  The station is home to two pressurized water reactors capable of generating 1,768 megawatts combined. Units 1 and 2 began commercial operation in 1975 and 1977, respectively.
