If high temperatures continue, the demand for electricity in Israel is likely to hit 9,100 megawatts Monday and could rise to 9,200 megawatts on Tuesday, after already setting a new record of 9,060 megawatts Sunday afternoon, the Israel Electric Company said.
The previous record of 9,030 megawatts was set on August 15 of last year.
Israel Electric said it was supplying demand and would continue to be able to supply peak demands this summer "unless there are unusual malfunctions."
