The fall 2014 nuclear outage season is expected to be comparably lighter than the spring season as only 22 GW are expected to refuel. With the assumption that non-refueling forced outages and derates remain at historical norms, the total amount of unavailable nuclear capacity during the fall season's peak should be lower by 3 GW than this past spring. However, as we have observed through the summer, forced outages have remained lower than average with the fleet operating near full capacity.
