Energy usage in Victoria surges 45 per cent above normal weekend levels


Normal peak now 8700 MW: Peak power demand is spiralling so much
that regulators now rate the state’s highest energy demand, 8570 MW in
2003, as less than the peak level in a normal summer. The normal peak
is pegged at 8700 MW, the peak in a one-in-two-year heatwave is 9200 MW
and for a one-in-10-year occurrence is, 10,100 MW.
