Oconee Nuclear Station

Oconee Nuclear Station began commercial operation in 1973 and was the first of three nuclear stations designed, built and operated by Duke Energy. Located on Lake Keowee in Oconee County, South Carolina, the facility is eight miles north of Clemson. Oconee earned the distinction of being the second nuclear station in the country to have its licenses renewed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for an additional 20 years. All U.S. reactors are initially licensed by the NRC for 40 years.
