Electricity consumption in Jordan during Ramadan is expected to drop by eight per cent, as offices and industry close early, easing the burden on the Kingdom’s transmission system.

Loads on the power grid are anticipated to drop by 150 megawatts according to the country’s National Electric Power Company, and the news comes shortly after Jordan registered its highest consumption so far this summer.

“The country’s power grid capacity can reach 3,000 megawatts,” said Amin Zaghel, operations department director at the power company in a report by the Jordan Times. “The highest record since the start of the summer, 2,400 megawatts, was registered on Tuesday (July 26).”
