NYC: 13,000 Megawatts at 4-5pm July 27 2005

Con Edision asked many neighborhood such as North Brooklyn and Harlem to reduce their electric consumption as today's heat pushed demand past the record set yesterday and for the first time exceeded the 13,000 Megawatt mark at 4pm and 5pm.

Many midtown companies were asked by Con Ed to reduce their electric consumption by raising their thermostats and turning off unnecessary equipment and lighting. We went half dark at my office around 2pm today.

Yesterday there were some temporary outages in Brooklyn, but nothing serious. However, the temperatures can still get higher which may test the limits of the overall system provoking some controlled brown-outs. The noise level about this is not very high right now, but if there were disruptions that lasted longer than a few hours, people may get angry.

Personally I'm going to double check my supply of batteries and flashlights. I'm on the third floor of my apartment building so I don't think the water pressure will be affected, but that remains to be seen. For those in high-rises, start stocking up just in case.
