5. How the record satisfies number 4
  The data in the spreadsheets contains information on peak load and distribution operation data. Competitors could use the peak load information in their bidding strategies to the MISO market to MGE's financial disadvantage, and releasing the distribution operation data creates a potential security risk that could financially harm the company. This information is economically valuable because it is not generally known or readily ascertainable and its disclosure would aid utility competitors and electricity suppliers. The loss of value and aid to competitors and suppliers resulting from disclosure would competitively disadvantage the company in the market and potentially lead to higher electric costs for sales customers.
