PHOENIX (CBS5) -
Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station has been recognized for achieving its 21st consecutive year in 2012 as the nation's largest power producer.
The 31.9 million megawatt-hours of net production is the most ever generated by Palo Verde or by any other U.S. power station of any kind, according to a statement from Arizona Public Service.
Palo Verde is the only U.S. generating facility to ever produce more than 30 million megawatt-hours in a year - an operation accomplishment the plant has achieved eight times.
Unit 1 produced more electricity in 2012 than any other reactor in the U.S., and was the third most productive in the world, according to industry data.
Despite a scheduled refueling outage in fall 2012, Unit 2 was the third most productive reactor in the U.S. and ranked ninth in the world. Unit 3, which completed a scheduled refueling outage in spring 2012, ranked sixth in the U.S. and 17th in the world. Palo Verde's three reactors are part of 104 operating units in the U.S. and 437 in the world.
Palo Verde is jointly owned by APS, Salt River Project, Southern California Edison Co., El Paso Electric Co., Public Service Co. of New Mexico, Southern California Public Power Authority and the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power.
