Too Much Power for the BPA

The Bonneville Power Administration can sometimes have too much power. When it happened last year they turned off the wind generators, those producers were not happy. Now the BPA has an idea; they will manage through over-supply conditions when they have a lot of runoff in the federal power system, and a lot of wind and just not enough demand for all the energy being produced.  The answer is to have all producers split the cost of compensating wind producers for lost revenue. A finalized plan goes to the feds in March.
