Brutal Cold brings on High Demand for Electric Power

As the temperatures continue to dip, the Tennessee Valley Authority said it expected its most significant demands for electricity to happen on Tuesday and Wednesday.

According to the Nashville Weather Service, Snow has blanketed Tennessee from two to nine inches.

Energy authorities said the demand won’t drop off as much through the day if it continues to be cloudy. A second peak will happen in the early evening when people are coming back home from work, and they’re turning the lights on again and turning the heat up again.

Temperatures are not getting above freezing until at least Thursday afternoon, with another snow system possible then.
