POWER SAVERS ALERT 7/16 from 3-6PM
Power Savers Alert:
Due to expected high temperatures and high energy demand, we are asking municipal electric customers to VOLUNTARILY reduce electric use today, Tuesday, July 16th. Power Saver Hours are from 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
Customers are encouraged to lower their electric use during these hours to save money both now and later. Participation will lower electric use throughout the community and in return lower customers’ monthly electric costs and reduce utility energy costs over time. The more people that participate, the bigger the impact.
Customers can help by taking simple steps such as:
* Make sure devices like gaming consoles, chargers, and printers are unplugged when they are not being used or on a power strip that can be turned off to avoid unintended energy consumption.
* Turn down the temperature of your hot water heater to 120 degrees and avoid using hot water during this time to reduce your energy use.
