McGuire was operating at 97% early Monday, down from 98% early Saturday and Sunday, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in its daily reactor status reports.

Pulley declined to say when the reactor would shut for the outage.

Nuclear reactors often reduce power for days or weeks before such outages. The Nuclear Energy Institute has said the first refueling outages of the second half of the year will begin the weekend of September 5-7.


Reactors in the US shut for refueling every 12-24 months during periods of low seasonal demand.

The adjacent McGuire-1 reactor, which also has a 1,305-MW capacity, was operating at 100% of capacity Monday, NRC's report said.
