Collision of wind power with hydro. Battle to keep the grid running smoothly.


The Oregonian photo

Those who manage the generation and routing of wind power into the Northwest Grid will have an especially difficult time this Spring when an abundance of hydropower runs up against an abundance of wind power. Bonneville Power Administration, which has found wind power difficult to manage within its own system, could find itself back in court if it is ordered to shut down some of its hydro generators in order to let all the wind energy through. BPA has resisted doing that in the past because it claims cutting back hydro kills a lot of migrating fish (some of them endangered) and unjustifiably penalizes local northwest power generators just so wind energy bound for California can get through to Golden State customers.
