The unit was operating at 98% of capacity early Tuesday morning afteroperating at 98% early Monday, 99% early Sunday, and 100% early Saturday, theUS Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in daily reactor status reports.

"For competitive reasons, Exelon Generation does not provideforward-looking information on its generating units, including outage durationand start date," Ryan said. "This outage includes regular refueling andplanned maintenance." US nuclear reactors typically reduce their output gradually beforeshutting for refueling. This so-called coastdown period varies in durationfrom several days to several weeks.
