Updated January 10, 2018 10:48:25The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is expected to release its updated forecast of how much power the U,S.
electric grid will need by 2035, according to a report from The New York Times.
The Federal Government, which oversees the grid, will be able to use the updated estimate to begin the process of selling off unused generation capacity.
The update is expected by the end of the year, though it will only be released if the U’s demand for energy exceeds what the Federal Government can afford to purchase.
The grid will be a much more expensive proposition to operate in the 2020s.
The U.s. already relies on natural gas for about 40% of its power, while wind and solar are more expensive to operate.
If the Federal government can sell off its surplus generation capacity, it could save money by lowering the cost of electricity for consumers.
The new estimate could affect how the Federal grid functions.
The federal government will need to make adjustments to the transmission grid, as well as other parts of the power grid, to make up for the loss of power generation capacity in the U in the near future.
It will be the first time the Federal Energy Commission has released an update on the U grid since it was created in 1933.FEC officials said that the updated forecast for the future will help them “determine how much of the system needs to be rebuilt and what the cost is associated with that.”
The new forecasts could also impact how the U and its citizens spend their energy.
In 2020, the federal government has set a goal of using about 40 percent of the electricity in the country to be used for renewable energy sources.
But, if that goal is reached, the Federal energy regulator may need to use more of that power, according a report by The New Yorker.
