Nuclear update: Total US output eases with loss of Indian Point 3, Palo Verde 1

Total U.S. nuclear plant availability eased Feb. 16 to 94.29%, from 96.58% on Feb. 15, but above the 92.87% recorded on the same day in 2017.

Trimming output was the loss of Entergy Corp.'s Indian Point 3 in New York and Pinnacle West Capital Corp.'s Palo Verde 1 in Arizona. Both units automatically tripped offline from 100% on Feb. 15, according to separate filings with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Additionally, power at Duke Energy Corp.'s Brunswick 2 in North Carolina was reduced from 100% on Feb. 15 to 58% as of early Feb. 16.
