For commercial reasons, Exelon does not disclose outage schedules for its generating units, including when they are expected to return to service.

"While the unit is offline, technicians will repair, inspect and fully test the electronic system that controls turbine speed," Exelon said.

The adjacent 1,355-MW Peach Bottom-2 "will continue to run at full power while Unit 3 is offline," it said.
