According to an analysis done by the research firm Brattle Group, the retirement of these three nuclear plants along with that of the Three Mile Island nuclear plant in 2019 would lead to a loss of zero-carbon energy greater than the total amount of renewable generation in the entire PJM region, reversing the emissions benefits of 25 years of renewable investments. All four of these nuclear plants operate within the PJM Interconnection, a mid-Atlantic energy market serving 65 million customers and with 177 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity.

Prove otherwise with supporting articles (research)

Lets see when I started at TVA their grid load was at 35000 mw in the summer. When I left it was at 31000 mw. They simply wanted Watts Bar 2 so they could retire coal units not so they could expand load.
When I was the nuclear NERC/FERC coordinator for the ENTIRE TVA we were discussing the ability to lower grid load by another 1000 mw with a 10% spinning reserve.  I actually testified to a congressional committee on this child.

The pjm article is right on this site..

Still opinion from your narrow point of view not a supporting citation, nor is this a reasoned debate as part of a respectful productive discussion. You continually show disdain for anyone who disagrees with you in violation of site rule #4 and have no patience for people who are new who need this site more than someone who uses it to feed his own ego.

I have posted this many times for you so I doubt it will make any difference:

4. Please learn to be respectful, tolerate and support each other.  NukeWorker.com's goal is to help others, not see how many people we can annoy. Do not initiate arguments or tension. This will only cause the triggering of other members and make this site less professional.

Just because TVA is getting smaller, does not mean all grids are getting smaller. What is the big picture? Let's not confuse generation with usage. And there certainly other factors. Weather being the most significant affecting both demand ans generation.
