Powering to the finish: The ups and downs of electricity demand during a Patriots Super Bowl
One thing's for sure: the New England grid operator is ready for #thebiggame (otherwise known as the Super Bowl). This post to the ISO NEwswire examines the system operator's ability in real time to track electricity demand during the multi-hour event. “Whether it’s the beginning of the game, half-time, or the end of the game, we can see changes in levels of consumer demand," says ISO New England's director of operations, John Norden. Tom Brady throws a pick (I know, I know -- it never happens) and you hit the remote, ISO New England can pinpoint it for you. Gronk rumbles into the end zone (definitely been known to happen) and you break out a celebratory cold one, they've got you there too.
