At a time when emergency preparedness is more essential than ever, Luminant’s Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant is donating $50,000 to Hood County. The funds will be used at the county’s discretion, to enhance emergency response and recovery over the year ahead.


“Safety is Luminant’s top priority, especially when it comes to protecting our neighbors and hundreds of employees who call Hood County home,” said Ken Peters, Luminant’s chief nuclear officer. “We work closely with county officials and departments day in and day out, planning, preparing and conducting drills and training. This donation underscores our commitment to community, and to stand strong and together when times are toughest.”


The Hood County Commissioners Court accepted the funds at a specially called meeting, on Tuesday, April 7. Hood County Judge Ron Massingill thanked Comanche Peak for the donation, and for being a trusted community partner.


This donation follows an equal contribution, in February, to Somervell County. Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant is proud to donate $50,000, annually, to enhance emergency preparedness in the county where it is located and where it went online 30 years ago to help power Texas.
