And "we" have seven more days of this.
And I love it.
From the linked Reuters article:
Spot power prices in Texas soared to a record high for Thursday as consumers cranked up their air conditioners to escape another brutal heat wave.
Temperatures in Houston were expected to hit 99 degrees Fahrenheit on Thursday and 100 or more through Sunday before easing to the mid-90s next week.
The combination of heat and humidity will make it feel more like 108 F in Houston Thursday afternoon and above 110 over the weekend. The normal high in the city at this time of year is 92 degrees.
Next-day power prices at the ERCOT North hub soared from $130 per megawatt hour for Wednesday to an all-time high of $973.75 for Thursday.
I think Texas has more wind energy than any other state. And even so, the wind farms couldn't keep up with demand.That tops the previous record of $751 on Aug. 15 during the last heat wave to hit the state.
