Third power peak recorded today: Egat

Thailand's power consumption has hit a new record today at 27,198 megawatts, according to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand.
Egat Governor Soonchai Kamnoonsate attributed the new record to the persistent heat, with average temperature of 37.1 degree Celcius across the country.

The new power peak was recorded at 2.23pm today.

It is the third peak so far this year. The first was on April 21, when power consumption peaked at 27,139 MW when the temperature was 38.3 degree Celcius.

The second was recorded on April 7, at 27.056.8MW.

Power consumption breaks record for the 5th time this year

 Electricity consumption peaked to 27,345.8 megawatts at 2.23 pm on June 11 breaking all previous four records of this year since May 7, said Mr Rerngchai Kongthong, director of electricity system control section of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat), on Thursday.

The peak record on May 7 was 27,198 megawatts.

He observed all the five records of peak electricity consumption were registered during the onset of the rainy season.

The Egat has taken precautions to ensure enough electricity to meet the increasing needs, he said and urged members of the public to conserve power usage in accordance with the advice of Egat which include cleaning up airconditioners, switching off electrical bulbs which are not used, keeping the temperature of airconditioning system at 25 degree Celsius.

All the aforementioned measures if implemented will help save energy by about 10 percent, said Mr Rerngchai
