Southwest Power Pool sets new wind generation record

first_imgSouthwest Power Pool sets new wind generation record FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The Oklahoman:Hold on to your hat. Another wind energy penetration record was set this week on the electrical grid that serves Oklahoma and much of the Great Plains.The Southwest Power Pool announced energy generated by wind supplied about 15.3 gigawatts of 23.3 gigawatts of needed power across its 546,000-square-mile service territory at 2:08 a.m. Wednesday.That’s 65.7%, which means there was about a two in three chance that phone you charged overnight obtained that power from a renewable energy source.“As new wind gets installed that adds to our capacity and we do transmission improvements, both contribute to allow us to get more and more out of our wind resources,” said C.J. Brown, the regional transmission organization’s director of operations. Brown added that wind power-related records are fleeting as more and more of the resource is added onto the Southwest Power Pool’s grid.He attributes that not only to the organization’s success in building transmission lines to get that power onto the SPP grid, but also SPP’s efforts to improve its load forecasting and reliability and pricing functions.As of this week, there was 21.5 gigawatts of installed wind capacity within the SPP’s territory available to energize the system’s 66,000 miles of high voltage lines. In 2009, just 3 gigawatts of capacity was installed.More: Wind energy sets new record on the Southwest Power Pool’s gridlast_img read more
