EarthWorks Geospatial Catalog

North America (Electric Market Areas, Dec. 2008)

Description
The Platts Electric Market Areas geospatial data layer contains regions representing the geographic extent of electric price clearing markets. If a planning area is not affected by transmission constraints, then the market area will have one-to-one relationship with its associated planning area. If there are known transmission constraints dividing a planning area, two or more market areas will be created within a planning area to display the market extents.
