On leadership:

“[T]he Northwest is on track to face capacity shortages as soon as 2020, with a capacity deficit of thousands of megawatts by the mid-2020s. All the studies point to planned and prospective coal retirements as the key driver of decreased firm capacity available to the region...[These retirements] will affect both load-resource balance in the Northwest and the availability to purchase surplus capacity from other regions when Northwest supplies are tight.”

  • Frank Afranji, Northwest Power Pool, page 15, Winter 2020
