PJM Prepared for Hot Summer
May 07, 2019
PJM Interconnection said it has the resources to meet demand this summer, even with temperatures that are predicted to be hotter than usual. The grid operator expects electricity use to peak at roughly 151,000 MW during the season, and has 183,454 MW of installed generating capacity available. That is a reserve margin of more than 28 percent, significantly higher than the required 16 percent.
