GA Power sets three day record high

August 9, 2007

Albany-  A fourth straight day of 100-plus degree temperatures means another record high for Georgia Power.  Georgia Power set a new record Wednesday nearly 500 megawatts higher than the day before. 

Right now, Georgia Power's system has had minimal problems, but they fear another day of temperatures near 100 could start to stress their system. Georgia Power says they're taking precautions now and getting emergency preparations in place should they have problems with their power grid.

While Thursday's power usage won't be calculated until tomorrow it's expected to be similar to Wednesday's numbers.
