Net Energy for Load

=

Total MWH Generated - Plant Use + MWH Received - MWH Delivered

Peak Load

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.
