Weekly Observations (data for week of 6/25/2021)

  • Although Texas wind speeds and generation improved w/w towards the end of June, this has been a very poor month for wind in Texas even as electricity demand has surged
  • Seasonally weaker than normal, Texas wind generation in June was down 16% y/y and resource was down 18% y/y with some growth in the installed base helping to offset resource trends
  • Similarly, wind farms in the Midwest and Central regions are down y/y as well in June
  • On a positive note, generation in the MidAtlantic, California, and NY/NE was up y/y primarily due to capacity growth
