dc.description.abstractOperation Powerplay is a viable electric load management program developed and tested with Department of Energy funding and support. It is a concept designed to provide financial benefits to a utility and one or more of its customers through priority-based or on-demand load shaving. Currently being implemented in pilot form is a variation of Operation Powerplay. In this instance, it is the mutual cooperation between the Western Area Power Administration (Western), which markets hydro-power from Federal power projects, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) at Los Alamos, New Mexico. With this variation, only the portion of LANL's total load requirement for the Linear Accelerator at the Meson Physics Facility is targeted to be managed by this arrangement. This paper will discuss the negotiations and agreements between LANL and Western to maximize use of the Meson facility and minimize operational costs through this variation of Operation Powerplay.en_US
