With all the bad news so far in 2020, this is actually good news.

August 27, 2020 08:40 AM Eastern Daylight Time
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Exelon Generation announced today that it intends to retire its Byron Generating Station and Dresden Generating Station in fall 2021, resulting in the loss of four nuclear generation units that together supply clean, zero-emissions energy to more than four million homes and businesses in northern Illinois. Byron, located just outside Byron, Ill., will close in September 2021, and Dresden, located in Morris, Ill., will close in November 2021.

Good news unless they replace the lost power with the coal or gas-generated version. At the rate forests are disappearing, CO2 is the biggest long-term threat.
