U.S. nuclear output rose to its highest level in more than two months as NextEra Energy Inc. started its Duane Arnold reactor in Iowa and Dominion Resources Inc. boosted a unit in Virginia, today’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission report showed.

Production from U.S. plants increased by 775 megawatts to 95,066 megawatts, or 94 percent of capacity, the most since Sept. 27, according to the report from the NRC and data compiled by Bloomberg. Three of 104 plants were offline.
