STP Update

Good Morning,


The following reports reflect the energy impact of the most recent NWRFC STP.


Energy Scorecard:

  • September – Down 232 aMW
  • October – Down 254 aMW
  • November – Down 247 aMW
  • December – Up 299 aMW

September, October, and November all saw similar decreases in this week’s forecast update — all between 230-260 aMW.  December stood out as the sole increase, and that follows last week’s 1,000+ aMW increase as well.


While September only changed 232 aMW as an aggregate, that total is made up of several massive changes in the forecast including:  1,200 aMW increase on the 7th, 1,300 aMW decrease on the 9th, 1,200 aMW increase on the 12th, and 1,800 aMW decrease on the 16th.  October and November are much more stable with a near even decrease across each month.  December shows a large increase beginning on the 12th and sustaining it through the remainder of the month.

Year on Year

September is the only month that’s forecasted above-average.  October looks low and each consecutive month paces further behind.
