Texas expects record-setting power usage this week.

Reuters reports on a hot, hot summer that is pulling more electricity from the Texas state grid than ever before:

AccuWeather forecast high temperatures in Houston, the biggest city in Texas, will rise from 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) on Tuesday to around 100 F every day from June 15-20. That compares with a normal high of 92 F for this time of year.

ERCOT forecast power use will jump from 76,192 megawatts (MW) on Tuesday to 77,795 MW on Wednesday, 80,288 MW on Thursday, 82,646 MW on Friday and 84,110 MW on Monday.

The forecasts for Thursday, Friday and Monday would top the grid’s current record of 80,148 MW set on July 20, 2022.

Despite the heat, power prices at the ERCOT North Hub , which includes Dallas, edged up to $34 per megawatt hour for Tuesday from $33 for Monday. That compares with an average of $29 so far this year, $78 in 2022 and a five-year (2018-2022) average of $66.
