TVA wasn’t the only one breaking records during the frigid cold snap last month.
Rockwood Electric Utility also set a record at 7 a.m. on Jan. 7.
“We had an al-time system peak,” said system engineer Bill Musrock. “We were right at 89 megawatts.”
The previous record was 86 megawatts in 2009.
“We have several programs we use to help keep our peaks down. Peak shaving is very valuable to us,” Musrock said.
