LEHI, Utah (AP) -- Lehi officials are especially concerned by high temperatures expected this weekend.

To accommodate Lehi's rapid population growth, a $4.2 million substation was expected to be up and running before residents cranked up their air conditioners this summer. But delays mean the substation may not be online until mid-July.

Lehi Power Company Superintendent Rod Olsen says that has him keeping a close eye on the temperature gauge. He says when temperatures get above 100 degrees, that's when the power problem could become critical.

Olsen says residents should conserve when temperatures are high.
