Load shifting, rooftop solar seen cutting need


Load shifting, rooftop solar seen cutting need for peaking power: execs

Linking retail power costs to hourly fluctuations in wholesale power costs would be “a step in the right direction” toward minimizing peak-period needs, as would compensating rooftop-solar owners for their output at prices that reflect how much wholesale power costs that hour, the head of the Western Power Trading Forum said Friday.
WPTF Executive Director Gary Ackerman, whose group favors competition in power markets, said in a Friday interview that offering free or low-cost off-peak power — and actually paying…

PJM to have enough resources


PJM to have enough resources to meet peak winter power demand: report
PJM Interconnection’s total resources will exceed expected peak demand this winter by almost 46,000 MW, or about 35%, the independent system operator said Thursday.
PJM expects to have more than 177,600 MW of electric capacity resources to handle forecast demand of more than 131,700 MW, which is about 8% less than last winter’s peak demand of…

ISO New England eyes solar, wind, gas in low growth, energy efficiency focused next decade


Aggressive energy efficiency efforts and new distributed generation capacity — virtually all of it in the form of solar projects — are combining to put a lid on growth in peak demand and electric use in New England, ISO New England said in its newly released 2015 Regional System Plan.
“The regional energy landscape is undergoing a dramatic change in terms of the composition of generation, transmission, demand resources, and wholesale markets,” the ISO said in …

US FERC approves Cal-ISO backstop power capacity auctions


The California Independent System Operator will begin using a competitive solicitation process early next year to acquire backstop capacity when there are unexpected shortages or grid reliability issues under a plan approved by federal regulators.
“We find that compensating [capacity procurement mechanism] capacity based on the results of a competitive solicitation process will result in compensation driven by competitive factors and, therefore, will appropriately reflect both changing market conditions and corresponding fluctuations in capacity prices,” the …

Interests of electric power transmission, generation often conflict: panelists


The Houston Import Project flap has highlighted Electric Reliability Council of Texas generation and transmission owners’ competing interests, and attendees of a regional trade conference on Wednesday received a thorough briefing — but no resolution — of the issues involved.
The Houston Import Project is a 345-kV line that would connect a substation in the southeast part of the Electric Reliability Council of Texas’ North Hub to a substation in northwest Harris County in ERCOT’s Houston Hub.
On April 24, Cross Texas Transmission and CenterPoint Energy Houston Electric applied for certificates of convenience and necessity to build the project, which links the eastern corner of Limestone County near …

Cheaper fuel ‘drove down’ MISO power prices this summer: monitor


Significantly less expensive fuel outweighed this summer’s heavier average loads in the Midcontinent Independent System Operator footprint to keep real-time power prices substantially below last summer’s prices, a MISO panel heard Wednesday.
David Patton, president of Potomac Economics, MISO’s independent market monitor, told the Markets Committee of the MISO Board of Directors Wednesday that real-time energy prices averaged $28.78/MWh in …
