Summer Electricity Progress Report
7/9/10 Report

Good Afternoon:

Thanks for the stellar effort in reducing our peak last Tuesday (July 6). New England achieved its highest year-to-date demand for electricity for any one hour between 2 & 3 PM on Tuesday due to the record high temperatures and the heat build up over the long holiday weekend.

New England's peak from 2pm - 3pm this past Tuesday was 8% higher than the peak last summer.

Concord's peak from 2pm - 3pm this past Tuesday was only 6.4% higher than our peak last summer.

The New England peak grew 25% more than Concord's peak

If Concord's peak had increased by 8% like New England's peak versus the actual 6.4%, the difference would have been the equivalent of adding over 1,200 Haier, 5,200 BTUH window air conditioners to the Town's electrical grid.

The short-term forecast is for cooler temperatures, so we can all relax a bit.  Going forward, if the forecast indicates we may be approaching the peak reached last Tuesday we'll be in touch!

Thanks to each of you for helping out!
