A spokesman for Springfield City Utilities says the power grid is running fine right now during the heat we're experiencing.
Joel Alexander says there's been no peak demand issued yet, but they are of course dealing with things like animals getting into powerlines and cars crashing into utility poles.
Peak demand for electricity usually comes in August when kids are going back to school and more AC's are running to keep them cool.
He also says that if the heat goes on long enough, and transformers are not allowed to cool off overnight that could cause some problems.
Alexander assures CU customers things are in place to handle any power problems.
