    Thank you for your forum post,

    Other considerations depend largely on the context surrounding the increase in power usage. Below are a few thoughts we can provide absent further information.

     

    If power production is increasing to meet the power usage demand, then there would be economic activity associated to increased power generation operations (increased input purchases, labor, profits, and taxes).

     

    Is this increased power usage tied to capital investment in some way? Perhaps facility construction or new equipment purchases? There would be some economic activity (albeit short-term) associated to construction and equipment expenditures could have a local effect depending on the sites of purchase and production.
