The previous record was identified on October 5, when the source reached 967 average MW. Also on the 5th, it was the turn of the National Interconnected System - SIN to beat the average generation record, when 1,322 MW average were generated. On that day, solar generation was responsible for meeting 1.8% of the country's electricity demand.
