Nuclear Power Generation Outlook

Nuclear power capacity factor has been exceeding 2015 throughout November, due to a lighter refueling schedule this season.  That has resulted in the increasing displacement of natural gas fired power this year vs 2015 in November.  This excess should begin to decline in 1 week, and vanish by December 22, which could generate more than 1 BCF in additional natural gas power demand in the Year-on-year comparison.
