Xcel Hits Electricity Record on Wednesday
It's no surprise that electricity demand has been huge during the week of very hot weather in the midwest. Xcel energy is among the power companies that report record usage. Xcel hit a record yesterday, with usage of 9,533 megawatts, beating MOnday's record electrical use by about 30 megawatts. Before this week, the old peak electricity use record was during one day last August.
