Just the other day while riding around I notice the number of new construction projects with Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner. All of this new development – Multifamily, is going to put an enormous strain on the cities electrical grid. The utilities know it, the city administration is aware of it and consumers need to be concerned about having to pay for it.
