Projected electricity demand in March - Oct 2020

The projected weather phenomena starting March to October 2020 is shown below. The estimated temperature anomaly (deviation from the average) are as follows:

March-July 2018:  -0.6 to +0.5 C   (cold to hot)
March-July 2019:  +0.8 to +0.5 C  (generally hot)
March-July 2020:  +0.8 to -0.5 C.  (hot to cold)

Implications for electricity demand forecasting in the Luzon grid these coming hot months -- we expect cooler weather, rainy months this year and hence, lesser power demand.
