TVA Meets Record Winter Power Demand

Knoxville (AP) -- TVA has set another record for winter power demand.

The federal utility says demand reached 30,336 megawatts Wednesday.

That occurred at 8 o'clock eastern time. At the time, the average temperature across the Tennessee Valley was 15 degrees.

This surpassed a record set only a few weeks before on December 8.

TVA says the record could be broken again next week if current forecasts prove accurate.
