In extreme heat this is exacerbated by the ambient heat that just adds to how hot the generators or turbines are running. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share 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. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse What is the capital of UK?
