PEACH BOTTOM UNITS 2, 3 TO RETURN TO SERVICE THIS WEEK

 PEACH BOTTOM UNITS 2, 3 TO RETURN TO SERVICE THIS WEEK
 PHILADELPHIA, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia Electric Company


(NYSE: PE) said today that both units at its Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station in York County are scheduled to return to service this week.
 Restart activities for Unit 3, which was shut down by operators on July 14 due to low condenser vacuum pressure in the non-nuclear portion of the plant, are expected to begin today.
 Restart activities for Unit 2, which shut down automatically on Friday night, July 17, are expected to begin later this week.
 PE said Unit 2 shut down shortly after 7 p.m. on Friday after multiple lightning strikes at an electric substation near the plant interrupted output of the unit's power, automatically tripping its turbine and subsequently its reactor.
 The company said plant systems operated as they were designed, bringing the unit to a safe shutdown. There was no emergency and no release of radiation.
