Electric power use by customers of Kentucky Utilities could reach record levels by the end of the week if frigid temperatures persist, that’s according to KU’s Media Relations Manager Cliff Feltham.
The bitterly cold weather is increasing demands on the utility’s system.
Feltham says KU & LG&E have been able to meet customer demands without any problems. So far, there have been few power outages and they’ve all been brief. He says if bitterly cold temperatures linger through the week, KU customers could set new records for electric consumption.
