Subject: 2018 Load Profiles

Purpose of Communication: Announce 2018 Load Profile Update

Facts: PPL Electric has completed an robust update of customer load profiles, and issued the profile equations and support instructions to its external webpage.

The profiles continue to use a breakpoint-based linear regression model; however, the new profiles now use 2 years of actual usage data instead of 1, creating a more robust profile set for use by all parties. Profile file format mirrors prior years. Overall, comparison of forecast load (using the profiles) versus actual load resulted in a decreased delta using the new profiles (i.e. the forecasts generally tracked closer to actual using the new profiles compared to the old profile)

  • Large C&I customer forecasts saw a significant improvement
  • Small C&I customer forecasts saw a moderate improvement
  • Residential customer forecasts were generally neutral (no great improvement or weakness)

Supplier are encouraged to review the profiles and use the updated values as necessary for their own customer forecasts.

PPL Electric will begin use of the new profiles in its PJM forecast submissions on January 2, 2018. In addition, our Supplier Coordination website, below, has been updated with the 2018 load profile documentation.

For specific questions related to the files posted please send them directly to PPLSupplierSettlement@pplweb.com.
