PECO, PJM SET RECORDS FOR PEAK ELECTRIC USE; OTHER ALL-TIME RECORDS MAY FALL

 PHILADELPHIA, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Coping with the region's record heat wave, customers of Philadelphia Electric Company (PECO) set an all-time record today for the peak use of electricity.
 PECO customer electric demand rose rapidly with the temperature today, reaching 7,103 megawatts (mw) at 4 p.m., surpassing the previous all-time hourly peak of 7,096 mw set on July 23, 1991.
 Today's extraordinary customer demand also appeared on the way to breaking PECO's five-year-old, 24-hour record for use of electricity, 139,464 megawatt hours (mwh), set on August 15, 1988.
 PECO also reported that with no temperature relief forecast at least until Monday, its customers could, for the first time in the Company's history, use more than one million megawatt-hours of electricity in a seven-day period.
 The previous record, 912,713 mwh, was set during the sweltering week of August 9-15, 1988.
