Demand takes a step forward this month, with non-resource producing states taking the lead. Improvements in overall GDP underscored our revised update. We now project loads across MISO and PJM 1.1% and 0.8% stronger over the forecast period, and about 1.0% higher for SERC and SPP. With more coal retirements and lower gas prices in this outlook, gas generation takes an additional step forward.
