Exelon Generation Company, LLC, Three Mile Island Nuclear 
Station, Unit 1; Notice of Issuance of Renewed Facility Operating 
License No. DPR-50 for an Additional 20-Year Period

    Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission 
(NRC or the Commission) has issued Renewed Facility Operating License 
No. DPR-50 to Exelon Generation Company, LLC, (licensee), the operator 
of the Three Mile Island Nuclear Station, Unit 1, (TMI-1). Renewed 
Facility Operating License No. DPR-50 authorizes operation of TMI-1 by 
the licensee at reactor core power levels not in excess of 2568 
megawatts thermal (852 megawatts electric), in accordance with the 
provisions of the TMI-1 renewed license and its technical 
specifications. The notice also serves as the record of decision for 
the renewal of Facility Operating License No. DPR-50, consistent with 
Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Section 51.103, 
``Record of Decision--General.'' As discussed in the final Supplemental 
Environmental Impact Statement for TMI-1 (NUREG-1437, Generic 
Environmental Impact Statement for License Renewal of Nuclear Plants, 
Supplement 37, Regarding Three Mile Island Nuclear Station, Unit 1,'' 
issued June 2009), the Commission has considered a range of reasonable 
alternatives that included fossil fuel generation, renewable energy 
sources, and demand-side measures such as energy conservation. The 
factors considered in the record of decision appear in Supplement 37.
    TMI-1 is a pressurized water reactor located 10 miles southeast of 
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The application for the renewed license 
complied with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act 
of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's regulations. As 
required by the Act and the Commission's regulations in 10 CFR Chapter 
1, the Commission has made appropriate findings, which are set forth in 
the license.
    Prior public notice of the action involving the proposed issuance 
of the renewed license and of an opportunity for a hearing regarding 
the proposed issuance of the renewed license was published in the 
Federal Register on March 14, 2008 (73 FR 13923). For further details
