The weekly report has been updated to display week 8.
Same outcomes again, with demand down, Hourly Ontario Energy Price (HOEP) off by about a third and moving in a narrow range.
For the second week the highest price of the week was a spike at 7pm Saturday, as demand went up as wind production dropped. It seems something is both attracting television viewers and sucking the air out of sections of the province.

I will be working towards a monthly report that will also attempt to put this year's data in perspective against previous years. Here's a graph (YTD) that includes 'Demand Reduction' as a generation source -comparing to 2005 as a base year (demand in 2005 is the base year as it was the annual peak in Ontario demand) .
