July 16, 2013

Cranking up the air conditioner is one way to stay cool during an oppressive heat wave, but with electricity usage forecast to reach near record-breaking levels this week, National Grid is asking consumers to voluntarily conserve electricity to help keep supply and demand in balance during the hot spell.
“There’s always a concern when we have prolonged hot weather, but rarely do we see five to six days of this kind of oppressive heat and humidity,” said National Grid Spokesman David D. Graves.
