      DTE was disrupting residential AC yesterday and a substation went out as well. But might have surplus power today as it’s Saturday.

      EIA – Today In Energy
      Using power price maps reflects real-time-constraints on the transmission of electricity. Up-to-date maps don’t seem to be available to the public
      Price Tab: Gives the expected range of power prices for today in the U.S.
      Map: Click on Midwest/MISO > Real Time Market Data
      Has a page of real time wind production for MISO, but MISO covers a large territory in the U.S.
      Visual tools to better understand power power production & transmission issues. May have some use in Ontario to view how things work. Like wind power production fluctuations in real time.
