16 units and roughly 16,700 MW of nuclear generation listed offline

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) listed 16 reactor units as being offline in its April 10 morning report.

That represents an operating capacity of roughly 16,700 MW of nuclear operating capacity currently offline at units that list zero generation. (The figure does not represent diminished capacity at nuclear units listing far less than 100% generation on April 10).

The vast majority of the offline units are down for regularly-scheduled refueling and maintenance outages. Most domestic reactors have scheduled refueling roughly every 18 months. Such work is typically scheduled to occur during the low-demand spring and fall shoulder seasons.
