22 /PRNewswire/ -- Southern Company (NYSE: SO), one of the largest producers of energy, announced today that its coal, nuclear, hydro and gas plants have set a new record for equivalent forced outage rates during the peak season, which runs from June through August.
The revised guidance is due primarily to a cooler than normal summer (measured as cooling degree days) and to a lesser extent, to our base load coal-fired plants not continuing to perform at a level sufficient enough to make up for the company's high unplanned outage level (as measured by equivalent forced outage rate or EFOR) in the first quarter of this year.
