[ARCHIVED] Power Savers Alert Today from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Power Savers Alert!!

Due to high temperatures and increasing energy demand, we are asking municipal electric customers to VOLUNTARILY reduce electric use today, Thursday, June 30. Power Saver Hours are from 5pm to 7pm. 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:

  • Program the thermostat to adjust the temperature of your home 2-3 degrees at a time.
  • Delay using major appliances like the washer and dryer.
