Japanese nuclear production hits record low in October

The Mainichi Daily News reported today:

As of the end of October, only 10 of the 54 reactors were in operation in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in March, with the No. 4 rector at Kyushu Electric Power Co.’s Genkai plant in Saga Prefecture suspended between Oct. 4 and Nov. 1 due to troubles caused by mistakes in compiling its operation procedures.

That’s 18.5 per cent. Since the beginning of November, Genkai Unit 4 has come back on line, but that only brings the operational number to 20.5 per cent.
