Plant capacity factor: Gives an idea of reserve available.

Plant use factor: considers actual period of operation.

For hydro plants, plant capacity and plant use factors are much lower than those for thermal plants. Due to water availability restrictions hydro units are shut down for prolonged periods. Loading also varies substantially for the same reason.
