ENERGY CONSERVATION ALERT

Date: February 15, 2021
Topics: Press Releases

ENERGY CONSERVATION ALERT: Due to ongoing frigid temperatures, all PEC members are encouraged to conserve energy, if health permits, starting immediately and continuing for the next 48 hours.

As demand for electricity increases in extreme cold conditions, conservation efforts are important to bolster system reliability and ensure adequate power supplies remain available.

Here’s how you can help:

  1.  Lower your thermostat to at least 68°
  2.  Avoid using high-energy appliances like washers, dryers and dishwashers
  3.  Unplug unused small appliances; these draw electricity even when turned off

Southwest Power Pool (SPP), a regional transmission organization, issued a Level 2 Energy Emergency Alert this morning to mitigate the risk of more widespread and longer-lasting outages. Learn more here: SPP.org.
