The electric power demand of Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) has steadily increased in the past five years. This trend is certain to continue in future. Due to this matter the electricity load forecasting is thus an important topic, since accurate forecasts can avoid wasted energy and to prevent system failure. It is very important for the university to have advance knowledge of electrical load usage, to ensure the load is stable and to minimize the usage which contributes to decreased the cost of operation. This paper is to predict of maximum load in UTHM up to year 2016 with an interval of three years in between discussed using a statistical method and ERACS software to calculate the loadflow and followed by derivation of forecasting equations using MATLAB software. This method of forecasting is categorised aslong term load forecasting.
