SWIS Peak Load
This might not be the largest peak load that we have this summer, but it's the first of note, so I thought it was worth a look.
On Monday 5th January, we recorded a very warm 44 degrees Celsius in Perth, and along with it a high electricity demand. (Although the electricity peak was an hour or so after the temperature peaked.)
Below is a chart of approximate electricity demand for the first 6 days of this year. The 5th of January certainly stands out.
The chart also shows the mix of generation and their approximate contribution.

South West Interconnected System - Demand (MW)
The contribution from wind power plant on the system fell during the height of the peak demand.
