LOAD FACTOR FORMULA
Percent Load Factor
Net Energy for Load Peak Load (MWH) x 8,760
Net Energy for Load
Total MWH Generated - Plant Use + MWH Received - MWH Delivered
That 60-minute demand interval for which gross generated MWH was highest for the year.
The load factor
for a specific
index ranging from ultimate customers
one to to the
zero. It reflects total MWH that
the ratio of would have

that level of system net a total of 8,760 hours.
total been peak
The closer the load factor is to one, the flatter the load curve is or the lower the difference between maximum and minimum levels of use over a one-year period. The closer the load factor is to zero, the greater is this difference, and therefore the greater is the magnitude of peaking across the load curve.
