Shares of British Energy Plc, whose reactors can produce a fifth of the U.K.’s power, fell 8.7 percent after the company cut its electricity output target. The stock fell 55 pence to 580 pence a share in London today as of 8:07 a.m., valuing the utility at 3.34 billion pounds ($6.29 billion). British Energy late yesterday cut its production target by 2 terawatt-hours as it needs to carry out more inspections and repairs at its nuclear plants than it earlier expected. British Energy’s earlier output target for the financial year ending March 2007 was 61 to 63 terawatt-hours.
