Given the recent heat wave, this won’t come as much of a surprise.
SaskPower is reporting a new record for electricity consumption yesterday at 3,419 megawatts.
Compared with last year’s use of 3,330 megawatts for July 28, 2016, thats an increase of 88 megawatts.
Put another way, that’s the same amount of power use of 88 thousand homes.
Yesterday’s mark also beat the 3,360 set July 10th this year.
