-- Summer electricity adequate, transmission constrained, MAIN says
Electricity supplies in Illinois, Missouri, and Wisconsin are expected to be adequate this summer, but transmission serving Wisconsin remains constrained, the Mid-American Interconnect Network (MAIN) said Wednesday. The reliability council estimated electricity resources will total 61,353 Mw, including net contracted purchases of 1,886 Mw. The summer peak load will be about 55,221 Mw. After subtracting interruptible load, that leaves a regional capacity margin of 15%, MAIN said.
