Report: Grid Operators Warn of Electricity Shortages

Some electric grid operators, including in parts of the Midwest, are warning that power-generating capacity is struggling to meet demand, according to a story by The Wall Street Journal (subscription), as well as other publications.

The Journal says the increased risk of electricity shortages comes “as traditional power plants are being retired more quickly than they can be replaced by renewable energy and battery storage.” The story makes no mention of PJM, the regional transmission organization that coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity for Ohio. 5/9/2022
