Electric usage
Newport Utilities Electric Manager Jimmy Robertson says cold temperatures over the weekend created significant load peaks even for Saturday and Sunday. Saturday usage peaked at 126 megawatts and Sunday usage reached 124 megawatts. Warmer temperatures Monday morning along with school closings resulted in a greatly reduced peak system load of only 100 megawatts. "Forecast lows in the 30ís should allow customers to return to their normal power usage routines for this week," says Robertson. However, he says utility customers should keep an eye on temperatures because Monday & Tuesday of next week are again projected to be cold.
