Loss of Off-site Power Shuts Down Reactor

(San Francisco) Excelon Corporation announced Monday, Jan 30 that one of two reactors at Byron, Illinois had automatically shut down due to loss of electrical power from the electrical grid.

The two Byron nuclear stations generate almost 7 Billion Watts of heat, 2.3 Billion Watts is turned into electricity; the remaining 4.7 Billion Watts of Heat is wasted heating up the Rock River.

This is perfectly in line with the normal abysmal efficiency of the big nuke power reactors of at most 33%. Equivalent Billion Watt  coal and/or natural gas power plants hit 60% efficiency.

Light radioactive gases are being released in steam from the turbine building.

Excelon says this includes radioactive Hydrogen. Excelon’s description would be funny if it was not an outright lie and murderous in its application.

“The steam contains tritium, a hydrogen isotope with low levels of radioactivity. Exelon, in a news release, said tritium occurs naturally and is found in virtually all surface water, although it is found in greater concentrations near nuclear reactors.” …Excelon Corporation

Tritium is vanishingly rare in nature. Tritium is manufactured by atomic bombs and nuclear reactors. Tritium is then used by the nuclear weapons labs in hydrogen bombs to boost the bomb’s destructive output a thousand times.

The simple fact of the matter is that radioactive hydrogen combines readily with water and all of us humans are 70% water.

What’s more, 80% of the molecular bonds in human bodies are hydrogen bonds. The radioactive hydrogen goes right through our clothes and skin to wreak havoc on a molecular scale.

Vets, Don’t Go to Byron, Il.


Because of this, I’d stay clear of the Byron, Illinois area for the immediate future. For VeteransToday readers, there is no good reason to go there.

All American nuclear reactors must be fed electricity from the electric grid from two separate directions. The outside electricity is used to power the all important water pumps. Without tons of moving water utter destruction is but hours away. It is a very interesting question, then from a military standpoint, of how both electrical feeds at the Byron Station were discontinued at the same time.

Your comments are welcome.

  1. Bob,

    I have been an engineer for 20 years; several years ago had long talk with the CEO of one of the largest engineering associations in the United States, we discussed some serious problems being promoted. Bob, when you start believing that High School/GED education is equivalent to degree in Electrical Engineering, your country is in serious trouble.

    To: xx at [email protected]

    I asked you several days ago to send me the URL or other proof that this falsification of degrees is going on. I guess xx did not get the Email, eh?

    You refused and kept posting your tale.

    Deliver the goods or continue to be nuked.

    Your choice “xx”.

  2. Hi Karl,

    You sound like an Insider. What I hear you saying, very carefully between the lines, is that the fake Emergency Power thing is an iffy, expensive Scam.

    Is that about what you said, more or less? go ahead, Karl, take the plunge here on VT, it will do you good. don’t leave out the activation products decay heat which no one controls.

    Go for it, Karl,


  3. DaveE,

    Well, plain and simple, that makes ir premeditated murder. Nothing less.

    These Snakes in Suits tell seemingly helpless populations they are going to randomly murder them each year and sell them overpriced electricity made by the killing machine.

    It’s kinda like buying into the Guillotine for height reduction.

    Not me, count me out.

    And, yea, when these monster killing machines are working perfectly by the book, they leak killing radioactive gases. Yea. By the book.


  4. Power plants, including nukes, including Fukushima Daichi, have emergency DIESEL generators. They are notoriously undependable. The grid provides power for onsite operations. This isn’t “emergency” power. Trip the grid (“offsite power”) and things get dicey, but the emergency DIESELS are supposed to handle power for shutdown and things like keeping the spent fuel pool cooling going if the grid isn’t available because of a switchyard trip or other grid supply interruption.

  5. …… and that’s as good as it gets. If they’re “not dependable” when they’re working properly, what does that make them when they’re not, ala Fukushima?

  6. Oh yea,… Absolutely right.

    They must be coal plants, too, absolutely not nuke reactors. Nuke reactors do not qualify because the Feds do not consider the nuke reactors stable enough to depend on them in an emergency. Now, ain’t that a Hoot.

    No. Not really.It is disgusting actually. Only 33% efficient and judged not dependable.


  7. ALL of America’s 104 big nuke reactors are required to have grid supplied emergency power. Is that right?
