 NRC REPORTS "SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE" AT PERRY POWER PLANT
 IN SECURITY, EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
 CLEVELAND, Dec. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Two areas at the Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company's Perry Power Plant -- Emergency Preparedness and Security -- again earned the highest possible performance ratings from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in its most recent Systematic Assessment of Licensee Performance (SALP) Report.
 Emergency Preparedness and Security each received Category 1 ratings, which, accordinbg to the NRC, indicate that "management attention and involvement are readily evident and place emphasis on superior performance...with the resulting performance substantially exceeding regulatory requirements."
 In a letter to Michael D. Lyster, vice president -- Perry Nuclear, NRC Region III Administrator A. Bert Davis wrote, "You are again commended for your sustained superior performance in the areas of Security and Emergency Preparedness, which have now been recognized for six and seven SALP periods, respectively."
 Five other areas received Category 2 ratings, demonstrating "a level of performance above that needed to meet regulatory requirements." Those areas are: Plant Operations, Maintenance/Surveillance, Engineering/Technical Support, Radiological Controls, and Safety Assessment/Quality Verification.
 Davis, wrote, "Overall, your performance has improved as indicated by the improving trend in Engineering/Technical Support and the reversal of the declining trend in Maintenance/Surveillance."
 The Perry Power Plant received no Category 3 ratings.
 The NRC routinely issues SALP Reports to all U.S. nuclear power plants to provide an overview of each plant's performance. Seven area are given grades ranging from "Category 1" -- the highest rating -- to "Category 3." Improving or decreasing trends are also noted.
 The Perry Power Plant is operated by the Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company, a subsidiary of Centerior Energy Corporation (NYSE: CX), for a consortium of five electric utilities including the Toledo Edison Company (also a Centerior Energy subsidiary), the Ohio Edison Company, Pennsylvania Power Company, and Duquesne Light Company.
