- Navigate to your My Dashboard page.
- Create your first dashboard by either clicking on the "+" tab in the top left corner, or by clicking the "click here" link.
- In the pane that appears, give your dashboard a name. For this example, we'll name it "NYISO".
- Now we have an empty dashboard. Each dashboard can contain different widgets, each of which will provide a different stream of information. To add a new widget, click the "click here" link if adding one for the first time or click the "Add Widget" link on the top right corner of the page.
- In the pane that appears, select the type of information you'd like the widget to display. For this example, we'll be picking the "List" type so that we can view the EGPS reports we're most interested in.
- Now we need to fill out our new Widget's settings. For this example, we'll search for our NYISO LMP and NYISO DA Shadow Prices reports by name and the click on "save" to save the widget.
- In the top right corner of each widget are a set of icons for handling these widgets. The leftmost two vertical bars can be dragged around the page to re position the widget. The circular arrows refresh the widget by checking for the latest data available. The pencil icon opens that widget's configuration. The x button allows you to remove the widget.
- In the top right corner of the page there is also a "remove dashboard" link that allows you to completely delete the current dashboard. If you have multiple dashboards created, an additional "set as default" button that will make this dashboard the one that initially opens when you visit this page.
There are three ways you can export data from our site:
- If you are looking at one of our interactive charts, there is an export button above each graph that will download you a csv file of that data.
- Our Data Query Tool is an Enterprise level feature that allows users to write and graph their own queries against our data. After you generate a chart, you can click on the "Export" button to save the data as a csv, or you may click on the "HTML" or "CSV" permalinks under the graph to link back to either the data query page or the csv data respectively.
- We also have programmatic access to our data available to our Enterprise customers via the Time Series API. You can contact us to set up an API key or a free trial.
For consulting services or enterprise features, trials and samples are given out on a per customer basis. Please contact us to inquire about the service or feature you would like to demo.
Our free daily newsletter is a shallow dive into many of the topics we often write about for our more in-depth weekly articles and monthly recaps. You can subscribe to our daily newsletter to get an idea of the topics and content we normally write about.
Details on each of our subscription tiers can be found on our Product Page.
All purchased Reports can be found at Preferences Order History. "View" and "Download" links will be available under every report order listed.
Enterprise customers can find old reports can be found under Research > Report Search. Here you may search for reports by subject and/or time range, or you may leave the subject line blank and hit filter for a full list of reports available to you. If your reports do not show up or the link appears to not be clickable, please contact us for further assistance.
Silver tier or above newsletter customers can search for our old newsletters via the Google search engine. You can search for "site:www.energygps.com newsletter <keywords>" on Google and they will return our most relevant newsletters to your search.

We separate both months into halves due to annual rules regarding fish spill for the hydro projects in the Lower Snake and Lower Columbia basins that significantly impact generation part-way through each month. These stricter fish spill requirements kick in part way through April and mean that the greater portion of inflows to these hydro projects do not pass through the generators in the dams but are diverted into spill, thus decreasing generation. These requirements end in mid-August, where we see a significant increase in generation on similar inflows. For our hydro forecasts, “Apr” and “Aug” refer to the first 15 days of April and August, respectively, while “Apr1” and “Aug1” refer to the remainder of each month.
Our Normal forecast refers to the expected monthly generation based on average flows and conditions. We use the official normal unregulated Jan-Jul, Apr-Jul, Jan-Aug, and Jan-Sep seasonal flows at The Dalles, Lower Granite, and Grand Coulee from the Northwest River Forecast Center (NWRFC), which consist of the 30-year average from 1991-2020. These flows are used as inputs in our long-term hydro forecast model, which accounts for typical project operations with respect to flood control draft and refill as well as fish spill requirements. These requirements and directives are updated periodically, and our Normal hydro forecast is updated to account for these changes.
We divide the PNW hydro system into different basins or collections of projects by region. See Table 1 and Figure 1 below for a list of projects by river basin and map.
