The LaSalle County nuclear power station, located 11 miles southeast of Ottawa, Illinois, USA serves Chicago and northern Illinois with electricity. It has two General Electric boiling water reactors, generating a total of 2,280 net Megawatts. The plant is owned and operated by the Exelon Corporation. LaSalle County Station units 1 and 2 currently holds the world record top two spots for run time without shutting down for boiling water reactors, 739 and 712 days respectively. Both cycles were breaker to breaker.
On 2006-02-20 the Chicago Tribune reported that a "site area emergency" (a classification only one level down from the "general emergency" that occurred at Three Mile Island) was declared at the plant at 12:28 a.m. This was the first SAE declared at a US nuclear plant since the 1991 SAE at the Nine Mile Point Unit 2 reactor in New York, although several SAEs have occurred in intervening years at fuel cycle plants or US government owned facilities regulated by the US Department of Energy instead of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. It was the fourth NRC SAE in US nuclear history.
