In extreme heat this is exacerbated by the ambient heat that just adds to how hot the generators or turbines are running.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsApp oreoflow Added an answer on June 13, 2019 at 2:27 am Air conditioning.A/C uses lots of power – as anyone who lives in a hot climate can tell you. Collectively that sometimes means that more power is needed than power plants can produce. If demand exceeds supply… someone stops getting power.0Reply Share ShareShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on WhatsAppLeave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
