MLGW Cites Record Usage This Week

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division (MLGW) customers have set electricity usage records in each of the past two days.

Interim MLGW boss Jerry Collins says that despite the record temperatures, and record megawatts expended to fight them, the system is functioning properly, and customers have experienced few outages.

Collins adds that the utility company solved the problem of potential high-use outages in advance by repairing traditional problem areas last September.

The utility still recommends a variety of conservation methods to keep utility bills manageable, including setting thermostats at 78 degrees, and closing window shades on the sunny side of the house.
