NYISO Load this P.M.

Dispatchers at the NYISO Control Room
The New York Independent System Operator operates New York’s bulk electricity grid, administers the state’s wholesale electricity markets, and provides comprehensive reliability planning for the state’s bulk electricity system.

In 2005-2006 the NYISO had projected the summer peak load for 2009 at 33,770 MW.

Today’s temperature has broken 90F for the first time since April,  and the humidity feels quite high. Loads should be approaching peaks. Here are the actual loads:
