Millstone provides around-the-clock, zero-carbon, fuel-secure electricity that meets more than half of Connecticut’s electricity needs. Millstone employees have contributed more than 25,000 volunteer hours in their community since 2013 and have made more than $12 million in charitable donations since 2002, including funding for a scholarship program at Three Rivers Community College.
Millstone is Waterford’s top employer and taxpayer, representing 35 percent of the tax base and paying $29.7 million in local taxes.
The Millstone power station has been in operation for over 40 years.
It was once the site of three full time reactors. Although only two reactors remain in operation, Dominion Energy has been able to produce more power with two reactors than three through efficient operation and modernization.
Under Dominion Energy's ownership, the Millstone station has been recognized as being among the safest, most efficient nuclear power plants in the world.
