Houston (Platts)--13 Feb 2017 531 pm EST/2231 GMT


Southwest Power Pool in the US set a new wind penetration record of 52.1% early Sunday morning, it said, which it believes is the first time a North American RTO served more than 50% of its load at a given time with wind energy.

SPP said that the record was set at 5:30 am EST Sunday (1030 GMT). Total load at the time was 21,919 MW, of which wind made up 11,419 MW, according to SPP.

In the real-time market, the five-minute SPP North Hub real-time locational marginal price fell to $17.90/MWh at 5:30 am EST, while SPP South Hub LMP dropped to $18.18/MWh.

Last Thursday, SPP set a new wind peak generation record of 13,342 MW at 10:34 pm EST, surpassing the previous record of 12,336 MW on December 30 by more than 1,000 MW.
