Description

A common measure of reliability for generating units is the Equivalent Availability Factor (EAF). The EAF is a measure of the number of hours the full capacity of a generating unit is available per the total period hours.

Availability targets for baseload facilities (South Texas Project and Fayette Power Project) are adjusted annually depending on the duration of any planned outages for that year. For intermediate and peaking facilities, Austin Energy?s peak season availability target is greater than or equal to 95%.

The target numbers are: South Texas Project ? 94.8%, Fayette Power Project ? 94.2%, and (Sand Hill Energy Center Unit 5A , Sand Hill Energy Center Units 1-4, Decker Creek Power Station GT 1-4, Decker Creek Power Station D1-2) all ? 95%
