An increase in electrical loads of 3% in the past month



The company said in a statement, that this load "is the highest load recorded by the electrical system in this month compared to the month of March 2020, when the maximum load reached 3140 mW." The statement indicated that "the electrical system recorded an increase in loads during the cold wave that began last week, as the electrical load reached 3050 MW, compared to what was recorded last year, as it reached 2515 MW during the same period with a growth rate of about 20%." . The main reasons for this increase are the consequences of the Corona epidemic, which "contributed to the decrease in electrical loads for the same period last year, in addition to the high loads as a result of significantly lower temperatures throughout the Kingdom by 4-6 degrees Celsius than their normal rate at such times of the year." According to the statement.
