Winter's Impact on Energy Prices and How to Reduce Risk

read | Share:

Extreme weather events can have a major impact on energy prices. 

In 2014, the polar vortex caused prices to skyrocket across the country, including in the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) and PJM service territories. 

In ERCOT, wholesale prices reached $5,000/megawatt hour (MWh) for the first time ever and average electricity prices were greater than $1,300/MWh — 40 times higher than average in ERCOT. For PJM, the average cost to ensure reliable power delivery shot up from $53/MWh in 2013 to $150/MWh in January 2014.
