It’s getting hot.
But PJM Interconnection which is responsible for the electric grid in more than a dozen states says don’t worry they will be able to handle power demands this summer.
During a news conference at their headquarters in Norristown, Pennsylvania the company which serves 65 million people said they expect a peak demand of 153-thousand megawatts of electricity this summer.
That’s just above the nearly 152-thousand megawatts last year.
WBOC reports that the company said even with sustained heat it will be able to compensate for any overworked generators or transformers.
In addition, they said that they have their own meteorologist on staff to monitor the weather.
