6/13 Demand Response Alert: Power Hours from 3-6PM

Date: June 13, 2017

Demand Response Alert!!

Due to warm temperatures and high energy demand, we are asking municipal customers to VOLUNTARILY reduce electric use TUESDAY June 13, 2017. Power Hours are from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. During these hours customers are encouraged to lower their electric use during these high demand hours. This will lower your community wide electric use and in return reduce electricity costs. The more people that participate, the greater the effect. 

 Customers can help by taking simple steps such as:

  • Turning off unnecessary lights
  • Adjusting thermostats up 2-3 degrees
  • Delaying the use of major electric appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines, and clothes dryers

By taking these steps, you're helping your local electric utility continue to provide low cost, reliable electricity.
