Some natural gas generators may need to get their fuel from other sources during pipeline construction
Under normal weather conditions of 90 degrees Fahrenheit (F), electricity resources should be sufficient to meet consumer demand this summer, with a forecasted peak of 26,704 MW megawatts (MW). Extreme weather of 94°F could push up electricity demand to 29,042 MW. Construction work on the region’s natural gas pipeline infrastructure will require some power plants to obtain fuel from different sources. View the press release.
