Nuclear Power... not dead yet..

(1/2) > >>

I was perusing the NRC website this morning and noticed that every unit in regions I and II were operating at 100% power!  Pretty impressive... In fact nationwide there are only a few units
below 100%...  a couple of them are coming up after an outage and are 90+ %.

Here at Prairie Island unit 2, we are nearing Mode 4 and hope to be on-line soon.

Ft Calhoun is at 43% power which is great news for them!  It has been a long 3 years and
I am very happy for everyone there...

Happy Holidays to all my fellow nukeworkers... i believe our future is still bright! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)


sounds like you and I are one of the only ones on NW who have any hope nuclear power isn't completely dying.  nice to know there is someone else....

You are not alone.  Although I'm not sure I would recommend this career to my grandchildren.

Dying industry.

Not quite dying, but on the ropes.  Natural ga prices are projected to rise in 2015/2016.  That combined with EPA emmissions restrictions will keep nuclear an option.  Southern and SCANA have to show that construction schedules and costs can be predictable.
