The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) just released its 2023 Summer Reliability Assessment. It is not pretty.

“If temperatures spike this summer, parts of the United States could face electricity supply shortages as demand for cooling increases, according to analysis by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). The latest summer reliability report from NERC warns that two-thirds of North America is at risk of energy shortfalls this summer during periods of extremely high electricity demand.”

While there are adequate generation resources available for normal summer conditions, this summer is already outside of normal. El Nino has added to the challenges and forecasts for the remainder of the summer do no bode well for a cooling off period.

Utilities will have to take emergency measures which could be load shedding and rolling blackouts. Not something you want when it is 100 + degrees.
