Update report on congestion in the Texas Panhandle


LCG, February 16, 2017--LCG Consulting has updated the report on congestion in the Texas Panhandle.

The Texas Panhandle is seeing rapid wind development, as well as extensive transmission development and a possible connection to Lubbock Power & Light (LP&L).

In light of this growth, LCG is conducting ongoing modeling of the Panhandle region of Texas and is offering an 2017 UPDATE to last year’s extensive ERCOT Panhandle Renewable Energy Zone Outlook.

This UPDATE looks at three years, 2017, 2018 and 2021, and considers upgrades suggested by Sharyland Utilities.

For more in depth analysis, LCG can provide tailored datasets, such as individualized generator performance, hourly LMPs, Congestion Revenue Rights (CRRs), and much more.

Our data is crunched using 5-minute dispatch and the industry’s most sophisticated and long-standing electricity model, the UPLAN Network Power Model. We continuously sustain the most up-to-date information on every detail of the Texas grid, from transmission upgrades to gas prices, weather patterns, and more.
