With temperatures reaching into the 30s this week, people in Saskatchewan have been eating up power to cool off.
On Thursday, just before 6 p.m., SaskPower said the province set a new summer power use record at 3,250 Megawatts.
A release from the Crown corporation said the new record is 50MW higher than the old one, which is enough to power 50,000 houses.
The winter power use record is still higher — 3,792 MW — but the gap is closing quickly.
And with temperatures forecast to peak even hotter on Friday and Saturday, SaskPower said the new record could be broken as well.
