We see some downward revision to demand in this update in most eastern power markets, although PJM does enjoy an upward revision over the forecast. In the WECC, average demand over the forecast has been revised up in California, the Rockies, and Alberta. In terms of supply, updates this month are light. We add an additional 700 MW of renewables, both wind and solar, mostly across the Southeast.
