New York will have enough energy this winter, NYISO predicts

ALBANY – The New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) which manages the state’s power grid says even in prolonged cold winter weather, the state will have a sufficient energy supply.

Wes Yeomans, NYISO’s vice president of operations, said that is because of its resource mix.

“We just are very careful to reach out and talk to the generators and we have very good communication to make sure and to ask the question do they have oil coming in barges, what are their current levels,” he said, noting they talk to the generators every day. “As we see their inventories drop with time over many cold days we do pay attention to what future oil deliveries they have.”

Yeomans recalled that in January 2014, with a sustained cold snap in New York, there was sufficient capacity.

The first prolonged cold of the season is expected by late next week, with temps not getting out of the 30s for several days.
