Power Supply Planning
Forecast Energy Needs
MMWEC provides daily, short-term (2-year) and long-term (20-year) forecasts of its Members energy needs.
MMWEC analyzes the cost and capability of resources available to meet Member needs, from construction of new generation and contract purchases to development of renewable and energy efficiency resources, then provides detailed recommendations comparing various options.
Generation - Analysis of existing and new generator projects allows Members to make informed decisions affecting the cost and reliability of their system power portfolios.
Energy Efficiency - Activities that achieve sustainable reductions in energy consumption are an important part of MMWEC's resource analysis process.
Customized Solutions - Each Member's Power Supply Portfolio is customized to achieve system-specific goals that may reflect local mandates, renewable energy targets and varying levels of risk tolerance.
MMWEC provides hedging and portfolio management services for Boylston's bulk power supply. As a Joint Action Agency, MMWEC enables us to take advantage of pooled transactions, resulting in lower rates for our customers.
