It looks like Albertans are turning to electric heating to get them through this wintery weather.
According to the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), power consumption was well above average for the month of January.
The load was 200 megawatts higher than the load this time last year, which is considered a considerable jump.
Manager of Public Affairs Tara de Weerd says it could be a variety of factors.

The Alberta Government has set up a new policy for contractors bidding on major infrastructure and transportation projects, requiring them to use apprentices in the 11 construction related trades.
The new policy requires apprentices to participate on major public projects valued over $15 million, or those that will require at least two years to complete.
As well, sub-contracts of $500,000 or greater, will also be required to comply with the new requirement and employ at least one apprentice.
Alberta's oil industry has rebounded and prices have risen since the crash of 2014, but the industry's long-term future seems uncertain with changes in regulations, transportation and technology.
2018 is expected to be a less volatile year, with fewer layoffs and a renewed focus on efficient operations.
But that doesn't mean things are going to be easy.
Producers in Alberta are struggling to find markets for oil, to attract capital investment and to contend with the NDP government's tax on carbon dioxide emissions.

St. Albert's council members will wade into the topic of electrical franchise fees during a meeting of the governance, priorities and finance committee.
But residents worried about their utility bills going up need not fear — municipalities cannot change their franchise fees willy-nilly, and the meeting is just the beginning of the conversation.
Councillors will be taking a look at a report from city staff on the possibility of bringing in an electrical franchise fee, but since it is a committee meeting, any recommendations councillors have would need to come to a regular council meeting before any decisions can be made.
The Alberta Investment Management Corp. is entering into a partnership with U.S.-based Enel Green Power North America Inc. for the operation of two renewable energy projects in Alberta.
AIMCo will take on a 49 per cent equity interest in two wind farms, which are expected to be constructed in 2019. Castle Rock Ridge II is a 30.6-megawatt expansion of a facility already owned by Enel Green Power North America, while Riverview is a 115-megawatt greenfield project.
On a day that epitomized a suspenseful era in American trade policy, the U.S. played down a presidential threat to impose a border tax, but raised the notion of upcoming Buy American provisions, slapped duties on Canadian pipes and invited the world to witness its internal tug-of-war over economic visions.
The star of this economic-reality show: President Donald Trump.
Building a "digital twin" of their physical assets, processes, and operations could allow companies to optimize their systems and cut their operating expenses by running more efficiently.
According to analysts Gartner, a "digital twin" is a digital representation of a physical object which also includes data from the object and the ability to monitor it. This gives businesses the ability to respond faster to changing conditions, particularly for asset optimization and preventive maintenance.
