ERCOT Wind Generation Just Misses New Record

ERCOT narrowly missed setting a new record for wind generation yesterday, hitting an hourly peak of 14,912 MW.  On Nov 27th, the all time record was set at 14,951 MW.

Nonetheless, a tremendous amount of wind power was generated over the recent two day interval, as the area chart indicates.

On an EIA gas inventory week basis, ouput for the previous week ended 12/15 was below last year, and the current week is likely to be similar to last year (with four days remaining.)
