CPS Energy officials say they're ready to meet the growing demand being brought on by triple-digit temps. Benny Ethridge, executive vice president of energy supply for CPS Energy, says San Antonio broke a record for energy demand on Monday of this week. Ethridge says no outages were reported. ERCOT says the statewide energy demand is expected to reach a record-breaking 77 gigawatts this Friday. The previous record was nearly 75 gigawatts in August 2019.
