Heat Leads to Power Use Record in Kissimmee
The new system peak marks the highest demand for electricity in Kissimmee Utility Authority's 104-year history.
Kissimmee, Fla. (PRWEB) July 28, 2005 -- Strong customer demand for electricity on July 27 pushed Kissimmee Utility Authority to a new all-time record for energy consumption. The new system peak marked the fourth power record to be established since July 4.
At 4:34 p.m. on Wednesday, KUA recorded a system peak of 322.3 megawatts (MW), shattering the former mark of 317.5 MW set on July 7. The recorded system temperature at the time of the peak was 98 degrees.
The new peak marks the highest demand for electricity in KUA's 104-year history.
A megawatt is a million watts or 1,000 kilowatts. That's enough electricity to power approximately 10,000 100-watt light bulbs.
