Virus Impacts BPU Electric Generation :
Electric production is down at the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities generation facility since the start of the COVID-19, outbreak.

On Monday, Kristofor Sellstrom, BPU energy and gas resource manager, discussed the BPU’s load, or electricity production, being down 10% since the start of the pandemic. Sellstrom said New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) has stated electric production is down 8% across the state.

“If this continues throughout the summer, it’s not a good think,” he said. “As load declines, our revenue declines as well.”

Even before the pandemic, Sellstrom said electric generation was down at the start of the year because of the mild winter. He said residential, commercial and industrial accounts have all declined.

“In the last few years, you can see the concerning trend,” he said.
