ISO New England says there should be enough electricity to meet the region’s demand as temperatures soar this week. New England’s grid operator says if supplies do run thin, it can ask for emergency power from other regions or ask people to cut back. Electricity use spikes during hot weather as homes and businesses crank up their air conditioners. New England is in the midst of its fourth heat wave so far this year. Northampton’s Senior Center and Easthampton’s public safety complex have been opened as regional cooling centers.
