Due to extreme frigid weather, energy use is much higher than normal, which is increasing demand on our power grid. Over the next few days, we’ve been asked to implement controlled, temporary emergency electricity reductions during certain times of the day in order to help avoid larger uncontrolled and extended power outages throughout the region.

To limit emergency electricity reductions and outages, we’re asking all customers to cut back on electricity usage until conditions improve.

Every little bit helps us (and you) conserve energy and prevent outages. Here are just some ways you can help cut back:
Plug in house iconTurn off lights and appliances not in use
thermometer iconTurn your thermostat down a few degrees (65-68 degrees) and avoid using electric space heaters
clock iconAvoid using large appliances (clothes washers, dryers and dishwashers). If you must, delay use until between 10 pm and 5 am
