November Generation Scoreboard: Nuclear, Wind, Solar, Gas Up But Coal, Hydro Down

The November electric generation scoreboard had two surprises. Nuclear generation jumped 14.6%, compared to November 2012, while coal plants output dropped 5.7%.

As for natural gas, gas plants produced 3.7% more in November 2013. For the year, gas generation remains down and coal up.

As is almost always the case, the big winners on the November generation scoreboard are wind and solar. Wind's output increased 36.4%, and solar soared 117%.  While wind and solar soared, hydro production plunged 15.7%.
