Saskatchewan again broke the summer power-use record Thursday afternoon.
It was initially set on July 10th, this year at just over 33-hundred megawatts.
According to SaskPower, we reached nearly 35-hundred megawatts of useage on Thursday.
Jonathan Tremblay with SaskPower sent out a media release early Thursday morning:
“We wanted to inform you that Saskatchewan broke the summer power use record again yesterday afternoon,” Tremblay said in the release. “From the peak of 3,360 MW set on July 10, we reached 3,419 MW yesterday. From the previous record set in July 2015 of 3,331 MW, this represents an increase of 88 megawatts, or the equivalent power use of 88,000 homes.”
The previous record before these two was set in July 2015 at approximately 33-hundred megawatts.
