Mild Winter Reduced Power Demand at TVA

Mild weather in late winter caused less demand for electricity.

The Tennessee Valley Authority says power demand fell six percent in the January through March quarter, when compared with the same period last year. TVA sold 42.9 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity in the federal utility's second quarter.

Power demand for the fiscal year to date, which began October 1, is about two-percent less than last year across TVA's seven-state region.

The figures were included in TVA's quarterly financial filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
