## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello all, first post. I'm interested in granular load factor statistics for the Palo Verde plant, and LF reporting practices in general. Reviewing the LF stats for PV in the PRIS DB, I'm a bit confused. The annual LF in 2002 was 102. PRIS indicates that 102 is a percentage. What I would really like to know is if a LF can be above nameplate rating,and how high LF can go while keeping the reactor(s) safe? How much energy are we wasting when the LF<100?

Context - my profession is M, E, & systems eng. I am interested in load shifting, and I would really like to figure out how much energy is being wasted from our base infrastructure. Loading PV to her limit seems like low-hanging fruit, and a great place to start. I'd really like to know the MWe waste out of PV.

Cheers,

Ben
