The metered hourly load data reported by PJM does not seem to match the “Total Retail Hourly Load” data posted to the monthly data room on the BGS Auction website. Can you please explain why these datasets do not exactly equal one another?

The two datasets you reference are not equivalent datasets. The “Total Retail Hourly Load” data that is available on the Monthly Data page of the website reflects Zonal load (all customers) less wholesale customer load. The data you describe from the PJM website reflects the total hourly load for all suppliers in the Zone, including wholesale municipalities.
