Bonneville Power to wind generators -- shut down, and you get free power

The Bonneville Power Administration says it is preparing to sharply reduce the region's wind generators' output during extreme high water flows in the Columbia River system as a last resort to assure that hydropower dam operations do not threaten protected fish populations. The pending order by BPA follows the rapid growth of wind generation along the Columbia River Valley and demonstrates the acute dilemma of too much wind, too much water, as the agency struggles to balance energy, economic and environmental laws and goals in the region.
