Demand for electricity reached an all time high at 21.40 hrs on Sunday night, according to power company GESA yesterday. Demand peaked at 1.1 per cent higher than last summer's maximum record, which was not reached until August 25. However GESA expected demand to rise even higher and says that it is more than prepared, having learnt its costly lesson from last summer's power cuts, and is confident it will be able to meet demand throughout the rest of the summer. The installation of the third gas turbine at Son Reus is nearly complete and will boost the Balearics capacity for generating electricity. The extremely high temperatures over the past few days, which are set to continue into August, is one of the main factors for the early surge on the power grid.
