Nuclear Power Output Approaching Parity with 2015

Natural gas consumption has been offset by higher nuclear power output during this shoulder season, but that offset is gradually fading.  As of today, output is at 93.7% of capacity, against 90.3% last year.

The gas equivalence of this difference, which peaked in November at >2 BCFD, is now just 0.64 BCFD.
