NewsOK – 3/17/2018

The Southwest Power Pool, which manages the Great Plains’ electric grid, announced Friday it had set a wind-penetration record of 60.56%. During that minute, wind supplied 13,928.94 megawatts of the 22,998.71 megawatts needed to provide power to customers within the pool’s 14-state coverage area. This record is just one of nearly a dozen that have been set in recent months.
