Exelon grants $225,000 for York conservation


Exelon Generation, after recently receiving a 40-year contract to continue operating Muddy Run Pumped Storage Facility, will grant York County's conservation district $225,000 a year for 14 years, according to a company news release.

Archie Gleason, general manager of Exelon Hydroelectric, presents a $225,000 check to Susan Byrnes, York County president commissioner.

The grant, which will be given annually through 2030, is to support agricultural best-management-practice projects that will protect the Chesapeake Bay watershed, the release states.

Exelon, which also operates Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in Delta and Three Mile Island Generating Station in Londonderry Township, presented its first grant check to President Commissioner Susan Byrnes on Thursday, Sept. 29.

Exelon is providing the same annual grant to Lancaster County's conservation district, according to the release.
