I don't hear or read anything about "brownouts" in Michigan because of the heat


Front door
Looking out our front door as the temps begin to climb this morning.

Maybe I missed it, but I haven't read or heard anything about our plants in Michigan generating electricity getting near maximum capacity during this high heat and constant consumption of air conditioners.  


You would think that the unrelenting triple digit heat would street local electric producers.  But, a quick check of online news shows no mention of that possibility in mid-Michigan.

Today is supposed to be a record-breaker in Lansing with weather forecasters last night predicting that temps should reach 105.  

Walking through our neighborhood on the southwest side of the city, you hear a lot of AC running.  

Anybody hearing talk of brownouts?
