Planners also need to find an estimated 400 megawatts a year for increased demand and replace as much as 6,200 megawatts generated by power plants scheduled for retirement. Energy planners have to be ready for a worst-case scenario. “Part of our concern is the weather,” Weisenmiller said, “and the other is things going wrong.” Perea ‘s excellent year The third year in the Legislature is turning out to be a charm for Assemblyman Henry T.
