AMMAN — Power demand fell on Tuesday by 50 megawatts and reached 3,220 megawatts compared to about 3,270 megawatts recorded yesterday and was the highest this year.

Director of operation and planning at the National Electric Power company, Amin Zghoul, told Petra that the power's maximum load dropped by 50 megawatts due to temperature's decline.

Power demand began to rise earlier this week due to an intense heat wave and hit an all-time high yesterday.

The Kingdom's total generation output is 4,000 megawatts, including power generated from sun and wind.
