In order to meet high electricity demand this summer, PJM Interconnection says it will rely on nearly 185 GW of available installed generation capacity and 11.2 GW of demand response and energy efficiency resources.

PJM, which serves 60 million people in 13 states and the District of Columbia, says it expects up to 155.5 GW of demand this summer. The 11.2 GW of demand response and energy efficiency resources it has available is about the same as the total amount of nuclear capacity in the state of Pennsylvania, PJM notes.

"After experiencing back-to-back summers of super storms and extreme weather, we've been focusing on the bigger picture of keeping the grid resilient - having the ability to recover quickly, no matter the challenge," says Michael J. Kormos, senior vice president of Operations. "Resiliency means considering more than an adequate generation supply."
