Balancing Authority Load and Total Wind Generation Chart, Last 7 days
This represents loads and resources in BPA's Balancing Authority (BA) including some that are not BPA's.
It does not include BPA loads served by transfer, scheduled out of region,
or scheduled to customers with their own BAs such as Seattle and Tacoma

Total nuclear generation was recently added to this page.
You will see that the total generation is always greater than the total BPA load because most of the time BPA is a net exporter of energy. The BPA Load does not include scheduled energy to other balancing authority areas.

The plants that make up the total fossil/biomass generation are:
