Man the radar is showing some very intense storms already around the Red Deer region
Those are not storms, infact there is not a cloud in the sky there
what ur seeing is just ground clutter
because of the surface heat raising and showing up as intense echos.

It plays a role in increasing the weather CAPE; which in the end provides more energy in the atmosphere for Severe Thunderstorms.

Took the dogs for a 3 hr walk today. At least they had wet jackets but it was not a good idea.

Am I understanding this properly
They are randomly cutting power to reduce demand?

It's not random at all.

Or since the widespread advent of residential air conditioning in a temperate climate that shouldn't require it.

Not sure why everybody should suffer the effects of the drain that AC puts on the system.

Note I wouldn't be arguing this in a climate where AC is arguably more required than preferred.

How about just telling people to cool it a bit with the AC. Excuse the pun. I tend to note people going overkill with these sytems and neighbors that seemingly have their AC units pumping nonstop while having open windows...

Millwoods, Clairview, Boyle St., McCauley, Alberta Avenue, no power for you.

Terwilliger and Glenora need more juice for the central air conditioning.

Well Alberta doesn't want to keep borrowing almost 700 megawatts of power from BC and Saskatchewan every day. Expect your power rates to go up because of it, or that they already have. EPCOR rates jumped from 7 cents to 10 cents per kWh in July.

Albertans love that AC.
