Exelon Generation said late last week that it has selected Rick Libra to serve as vice president of the Limerick Generating Station in Limerick Township, Pennsylvania.

“I look forward to the new role and working with Limerick’s team of talented and dedicated employees,” Libra said. “I’m committed to building on the many solid relationships we have forged with residents, local officials and community leaders in the tri-county area.”

Libra holds a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Johns Hopkins University and a master's degree in electricity management from Washington State University.

Libra joined Exelon in 2007 as a director of corporate-design engineering. Prior to this appointment, he served as site vice president of the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant and also served as its plant manager. Prior to working for Exelon, Libra worked in several leadership positions with DTE Energy and at the Fermi Generating Station in Michigan.

The Limerick station features two nuclear reactors, and Exelon reports a total site generation of 2,311 megawatts and over the course of 2014, it produced approximately 19 million megawatt hours of electricity. The nuclear generating station serves approximately two million residences in Pennsylvania. Its reactor units have been in operation since 1984 and 1989.
