Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station operating at high power

New Brunswick says its Point Lepreau Nuclear Generating Station is operating at high power.

It says the net capacity factor for December was 97.69 per cent.

Capacity factor is the megawatt-hour output of a generating station compared to the maximum that could be produced.

Last month, the station produced more than 479-thousand net megawatt-hours of non-emitting electricity, which represents about 41 per cent of the total net generation from N-B Power generating stations.
