Coal and nuke plants are best run (most efficient) when set at a level and left there, normally it's full power. 

On days when there's sun or wind (renewables actually on-line and producing) Xcel's Red Wing (Prairie Island) is at 100% but no one needs the energy so they've been cracking water to make hydrogen on those kinds of days.
