A recently released study, The Net Benefits of Increased Wind Power in PJM, conducted by Synapse Energy Economics on behalf of Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG), concludes that “adding more wind power to the grid in the PJM region can lower gas and coal consumption and reduce regional wholesale energy market prices, saving nearly $7 billion per year in the mid-2020s. …The report found that doubling the wind generation already planned in the region would lower fuel costs and drive down prices by $1.74 per megawatt hour (MWh) in the largest wholesale competitive energy market in the world, PJM, which includes all or parts of 13 states and Washington, D.C. The savings also extend into the regions interconnected with PJM.”
