ERCOT reports 50% reduction in transmission costs
Josh 201604 KWP

Chief Operating Officer Mike Cleary said energy prices in the first six months of the nodal market averaged $30-$35 a megawatt hour (MWh), compared to $55-$60 in the zonal market during the same time last year due to improved congestion management tools in the nodal market, specifically, the ability to dispatch on 5 minute intervals (vs 15) starting December 1, 2010.

What it means to me...

My bill was $293 this month for 2.566MWH ($90 wholesale = 225% markup).

The same time last year I paid $369 for 2.693MHW ($162 wholesale = 128% markup).

Insane markup. My thoughts are, for energy distribution, the mark-up should be the cost of delivery, such that if the wholesale generation costs are cut in half, my rate should be substantially reduced, or I should see some major benefit in service.

You know, rather than a rolling black-out and a level cost.
