Nuclear Power Status

Nuclear power output outpaced 2013 in January, by about 2%.  The spring refueling season will begin for about 30 reactors over the next 2 weeks.  The increase in output over January of 2013 would theoretically have displaced about 9 BCF of natural gas fired power generation.Only three reactors are currently reported offline....Beaver Valley#1, Palisades, and Monticello.
