STP Update

Good Morning,


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


Energy Scorecard:

  • December – Up 138 aMW
  • January – Down 323 aMW
  • February – Down  86 aMW
  • March – Down 279 aMW

December added 138 aMW and notched its position as the only month with a week-on-week increase.  While December saw its second consecutive week of increases, January through March all saw moderate drops in forecast.  January followed up last week’s flat forecast with 323 aMW, and February saw its third-consecutive week of diminished forecast.  March continues its helter-skelter projections with a drop of 279 following last week’s 300+ aMW increase.


December began the forecast with a massive 1,800 aMW increase, but that slowly wilted down to an eventual week-on-week decrease by the 21st.  Aggregate that together and you end up with a monthly increase of 138 aMW.  January and February hold a steady 320-380 aMW decrease through each respective month with very little variation.  March gaps as much as 600 aMW by the 6th, but the difference shrinks to 450 aMW by the end of the month.
