  Help Control Power Costs by Conserving During Hot Weather

Temperatures are hot and demand for electricity is high. The wholesale price of electricity increases during the hours of high demand, which are usually between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Help us control power costs by conserving during the hot weather.

  • Bump up your thermostat a degree or two.
  • Avoid using your oven or washing and drying clothes until later in the evening.
  • Turn off non-essential lights.

These simple steps can reduce your electric bill. They have the added benefit of helping to keep the cost per kilowatt-hour down.
