With more 90 degree days ahead of us FirstEnergy is monitoring power usage to determine if customers need to be advised to cut back on their power use. But FirstEnergy's Mark Durbin says there's no problem so far meeting the extra demand from all those air conditioners.
" We're closely monitoring that in addition to FirstEnergy in our operation centers. We are also working very closely with PJM Interconnection which is the regional entity that monitors the transmission grid," says Durbin.
Durbin says their customers can help the situation in your home. " You're serving two purposes. Number one, it insures that there's plenty to go around for everybody, but you're also going to pay less on your electric bill."
Mark Durbin says with its interconnections to other sources FirstEnergy has a "robust supply" of electricity to meet the extra demand caused by the record high temperatures.
