Power Grid Official: Capacity Concern Is Dwindling Cushion

The much-discussed electric capacity gap that will arrive in 2016 in the Lower Peninsula affects the reserve available and would not mean immediate shortages, an official with the Mid-Continent Independent System Operator said Wednesday.

Melissa Seymour, regional executive for state and customer affairs at MISO, told the House Energy Policy Committee on Wednesday that historically, the 15 states and one Canadian province within MISO, which helps assure sufficient capacity throughout the region, have had a surplus of energy.
