However, the extremes of those conditions, both in terms of the absolute value there of and in the frequency in which we will be at or approaching those extremes, seem to be changing.

Dave Kolata, Executive Director of Citizens Utility Board
Mohammad Shahidehpour, Distinguished Bodine Chair Professor of the Illinois Institute of Technology and the Director of Robert W. Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation
