BPA: Wind Energy flatlines during the week of Jan 20-27, 2014

BPA, which transmits and sells wholesale electricity in eight western states (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, and California) barely registered any wind power generation in the week beginning Jan 20, 2014 to January 27, 2014. Look for the green line along the bottom of the graph. BPA has 4,515 MWs of installed wind energy. BPA balances the ups and downs of wind energy primarily with hydropower generated at federal dams resulting in no net reduction of carbon emissions.
