SoCal Edison Reports Record Power Usage

Southern California Edison reported this week that it supplied a record 23,303 megawatts of electricity on Friday, 8/31. Edison spokesperson Paul Klein said increased air conditioner use by customers fighting the recent heat wave led to the shattering of the previous record of 22,889 megawatts on July 25, 2006. Edison encouraged customers to minimize energy consumption by setting thermostats above 78 degrees and using electric fans whenever possible.
