Heat wave pushes record to 56,883 megawatts

(ANSA) - Rome, July 8 - Baking heat has helped push Italian electricity consumption up to a new daily high of 56,883 megawatts, 61 MW higher than the previous record set in 2007 and registered Tuesday at 16:00, grid operator Terna said Wednesday.
    Temperature highs were more than five degrees higher than the same period last year, Terna said. Italy has been sweltering in a heat wave in the last few days with struggling AC units rachetted up to the max.
