Report summary

In this outlook most markets in the Eastern Interconnect see a boost to forecasted demand, although ERCOT and some markets in the WECC still saw a downward revision. The higher forecasted loads combined with lower forecast gas prices increase natural gas generation balances, and as a result prices and heat rates mostly rise. Despite lower forecasted demand in ERCOT, retirement requests for Big Brown, Monticello, and Sandow were approved, giving a boost to prices in the market as well.
