Perry Nuclear Power Plant
Perry Nuclear Power Plant sits on Lake Erie in North Perry, Ohio, which is 35 miles east of Cleveland. This Boiling Water Reactor unit is on a 1,100 acre site, generates enough electricity to power more than 1 million homes daily and is one of the largest BWRs in the US. When Perry began operation in 1987, it became the country’s 100th nuclear power plant. Perry originally received a 40-year license to operate until 2026; a team is now working to extend the operating license for another 20 years.
