Albany -- Electricity demand hit an all time high yesterday in Georgia, and we could be headed for another record power demand Tuesday.
A Georgia Power spokesperson says the peak demand on Monday was 17,547 megawatts; beating the old record from August last year by about 400 megawatts. The utility had no trouble meeting the high demand.
With temperatures around the state reaching the 90s and 100s again, a new record could be set again this evening. Georgia power had no failures in the system Monday.
The utility spends about $1 billion dollars a year on infrastructure.
