Work to repair a water pump has led to a reduction in power generation at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant.
The Unit 1 reactor is only generating electricity at 50% of capacity, while crews work on a feedwater pump on the non-nuclear side of the plant.
The Unit 2 reactor is working at full power.
There’s no word on how long the Unit 1 reactor will be operating at partial capacity. The unit’s output was lowered at around 3 p.m. yesterday.
