Kuwait- Rise in electricity usage linked to increase in temperatures


(MENAFN- Arab Times) KUWAIT CITY, June 9: With temperatures rising to about 48 degrees Celsius, the indicators of electricity loads on Thursday recorded a big number compared to the load rates during the past days. The indicator of electricity loads at 2:30 pm on Thursday reached about 13,600MW, a difference of about 200MW from the highest load registered last year, which had reached about 13,800MW. The total production is about 16,000 MW.

Sources from Ministry of Electricity and Water attributed the increase in electricity load to high temperatures currently in the country which have in turn contributed to the significant increase in demand for electricity and water.

They explained that higher loads to maximum rates are mainly dependent on the temperature. The demand for water has also witnessed a rise in the consumption rates whereby indicators showed higher consumption rate exceeding that of production. Consumption amounted to about 461 million imperial gallons compared to the production of 456 million imperial gallons with a difference of 5 million.
