The Tennessee Valley Authority on Tuesday ramped up production at the Sequoyah nuclear plant's 1,126-megawatt Unit 2 to 97% of capacity, from 56% on Monday. The reactor, 17 miles northeast of Chattanooga, Tenn., underwent refueling and maintenance that began in October. The increase in output resulted in power generation of 30,007 MW in the Southeast, the area's highest level since Aug. 22, 2011, according to Bloomberg.
