  •  PNW is a net Exporter of energy (0+ / 0-)

    There may be short periods where our Hydro power is in low output mode and we import but for much of the year, we export energy.  

    We have been adding wind power at a furious rate and have about as much capacity in wind as one of our famous Columbia river dams.

    •  Doesn't the PNW (0+ / 0-)

      import coal-generated electricity from the 2000 mw Jim Bridger power plant in MT?

      I think that peak wind energy generation in the NW now exceeds hydro some of the time.

      Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
