U.S. Nukes Abnormally Available

February 10, 2020

As if a mild winter, ample production and inventory, and reduced demand for exports isn’t enough to put downward pressure on natural gas and ultimately electricity prices, the U.S. nuclear complex has been abnormally available. 

Through the first 36 days of 2020, U.S. nuclear generation outages have been below the five-year low on 19 days and below the five-year midpoint on 28 days. (EIA Data)
