Weekly Observations

  • Another week of poor wind resource. October wind speeds tracking down 8% y/y, driven by slow wind speeds in California and Eastern states
  • Northwest is the one area where wind speeds have been firm through October
  • Despite poor wind speeds, wind power generation is doing ok due to higher capacity (new farms online). In Texas and Northwest, generation is tracking up 10-20% y/y.
