Weekly Observations

  • Wind generation tracking flat to slightly higher this month / QTR


  • Generation in contradiction to the wind resource, which has been tracking down last several weeks…looks most abnormal in California and Texas, where October wind speeds are down 10-20% by win generation is UP. Will continue to monitor / investigate


  • Northwest outperforming so far this quarter, with wind resource and generation both above year ago levels
