ISO-New England says there is adequate power supply to meet the region’s power needs during this extended heat wave.

Just the same, the manager of the power grid is asking consumers to voluntarily conserve.

Suppplies could tighten with peak demand expected to approach record levels by Thursday.

Spokeswoman Marcia Blomberg says consumers can help out by curtailing power use where they can: increasing thermostat temperatures in air conditioners and turning off unneeded lights and appliances, for example.

She says they’re hoping for a break in the weather by the weekend.

Projected demand for thursday is expected to be 27-thousand-800 megawatts.
