Heat wave may cause power outages
The extremely hot weather has caused some electrical outages in metro Detroit. High temperatures and storms last month contributed to power outages across the state. The National Weather Service expects southern Michigan’s heat wave to continue through the weekend.
Scott Simon is with Detroit Edison. He says the electric grid is in good shape and should be able to handle the increased need for power.
“Today we’re not asking our customers to curtail their electricity use but as always we remind our customers to use their electricity wisely and efficiently,” Simon said.
Simon says it’s hard to say what the week will bring, but DTE does not expect major problems.
