Texas Power Demand To Break Record As People Try To Escape The Heat

Demand for electricity in Texas on Tuesday will break a record high that was hit on Monday.

Texans are keeping their air conditioners cranked up in an attempt to escape the blistering heatwave baking the U.S. Southeast.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) projected demand will exceed 75,100 megawatts (MW) on Tuesday.

According to Reuters, on Monday ERCOT reported a record peak of 74,531 MW.

On a typical summer day, one megawatt can power roughly 1,000 U.S.
