Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corp's 1,166-megawatt Wolf Creek 1 reactor in Kansas was at 92 percent power early Wednesday, up from 48 percent of capacity early Tuesday, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said in A power reactor status report.

The unit, in Burlington, about 70 miles south of Topeka, the state capital, has been ramping up from a recent outage.

One MW powers 800 homes in Kansas.

In 2008, the NRC renewed the plant's original 40-year operating license for another 20 years until 2045.
