ERCOT projects that the 14.023 GW record will be broken repeatedly tonight and tomorrow, with a 14.77 GW projected output during the 9pm hour tomorrow.
24 ERCOT Wind Generation Projections for 11-17016:
Based on projected system load, wind penetration should exceed 50% tomorrow morning during the 3 am hour, which would set a new record. It is important to note that installed wind capacity has risen about 2 GW since the previous records were set, so this achievement was all but inevitable.
Here is tomorrow's system load forecast, showing a 26.84 GW load at 3 am, which corresponds to a 14.26 GW wind forecast, for a penetration rate of 53.1%.
