KEYS REACHES NEW USAGE PEAK DURING LOBSTER MINI SEASON

08/03/2015 ~ Keys Energy Services (KEYS) customers shattered a 10-year old usage peak on Friday, July 31st, when peak power usage hit an all-time high of 148.15 megawatts* (MW) at 5:00P. The previous record of 145.5 MW was logged on July 27, 2005.

“Annually we establish a peak usage around lobster mini season when the Florida Keys are at capacity and temperatures are at their warmest,” said Lynne Tejeda, KEYS’ General Manager & CEO. She added that, “not only did we break our annual record this year, we now have a new all-time peak usage record.”

The new system peak poses no threat to power delivery since the transmission line (TIELINE) into the Florida Keys has a capacity of 329 MW.

*Megawatt - a unit of power equal to one million watts.
