 Tom Ray, McGuire site vice president, will be leading Focus Friday on behalf of Duke Energy.   Refueling and Maintenance Outages - The Impact to McGuire Nuclear Station and the Local Business Community.   The focus of our conversation will be centered on the following: • A general discussion on McGuire operations • A high level discussion on what a nuclear refueling and maintenance outage is. • The number of contractors we typically bring in to assist with an outage. • What Duke Energy is doing to keep our teammates safe during COVID-19 as additional contractors visit our site.

Depending on who’s on the call, we’d also like to hear from participants especially if they are local restaurants/hotel owners in the area so they can discuss their COVID-19 protocols.
