Spring 2016 Conference
April 26-27, 2016
Anaheim, CA

With great pleasure the Western Load Research Association announces the 2016 Spring Conference will be hosted by the Southern California Public Power Authority in Anaheim, California at the Disney Paradise Pier Hotel on April 26 and 27. Click for details, or contact one of the Committee members.

We still have some slots available for presentations and one roundtable topic slot remains open. Let us know if you’re interested in presenting or leading a roundtable – a diversity of speakers and industry topics are invaluable.

Please forward this to anyone else in your company who may be interested in participating. Note that the discounted hotel rate for WLRA will not be in the Disney telephone reservation system until February 24.

We look forward to seeing you in Anaheim!


The Western Load Research Association (WLRA) has information exchange as its most important function. Attendance is open to individuals and electric utilities having an interest or engaged in load research or related activities. The WLRA meets twice a year, in the Spring and Fall.

The WLRA is coordinated by an executive committee, which is responsible for long-range planning, conducting the meetings and business sessions, and setting agendas to focus on pertinent issues in an organized manner. The executive committee is composed of two co-chairpersons and an appointed representative of the host utility. The co-chairpersons are elected for staggered, two-year terms of office, and they may choose to alternate the chairing of the meetings at their discretion.
