Electricity Monthly Update (12/21/2012)
This issue contains a feature article that discusses how smart meter deployments continue to rise. Other highlights include: In October 2012, net generation in the United States increased 1.1 percent compared to October 2011, with all regions of the country experiencing an increase in natural gas-fired generation. October is the normal time of the year when nuclear units go offline for maintenance. During this October, many more nuclear units went offline for maintenance compared to October 2011 and as a result, electricity generation from nuclear units decreased in almost all parts of the U.S. After reaching a low of $2.03 / MMBtu in April 2012, the price of Henry Hub natural gas has increased by over 69 percent to $3.44 / MMBtu in October 2012. This increase significantly closed the gap between the prices for Henry Hub gas and Central Appalachian coal.

Data are for October 2012, during which net generation in the United States rose 1.1 percent from the October 2011 level.
