Exelon Threatens Braidwood/Dresden Shut Down

Exelon is saying they may permanently shut down both the Braidwood and Dresden Nuclear power plants.  The statement was included in a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The closure of the two would put thousands of high paying area jobs in jeopardy.  This could be a ploy by the utility giant to squeeze some money out of the state.  Two years ago Illinois officials approved a multi-billion dollar incentive package for Exelon to keep the nukes in the Quad Cities and Clinton up and running.
