With the temperature in the single digits, demand for electricity is expected to exceed record levels.

The Tennessee Valley Authority is asking all electric power consumers, including residential, commercial and industrial customers, to voluntarily reduce their use of electricity until tomorrow afternoon. 

TVA Spokesman Scott Brooks says demand is expected to peak Thursday night at 31,000 megawatts and Friday morning at 33,000 megawatts.  

State Representative Brent Yonts (D-Greenville) has sent a letter to the President of the Tennessee Valley Authority voicing his dissatisfaction with the transparency of the company’s decisions. 

Yonts attended a November meeting of TVA Board members to give testimony on the then-proposed closure of two units at the Paradise Steam plant in Muhlenberg County.

A Tennessee Valley Authority spokesman says at least 1,200 interruptible service contract customers participated in helping the utility get through the high demand for power during this week’s arctic cold.

Duncan Mansfield said Murray State University, which shut down power Monday night, was the only such customer in western Kentucky.
