The Delaware and Choptank Electric Cooperatives are asking members to help them Beat the Peak this morning from 7 until 9 a.m.
It’s during those hours when members will use the greatest amount of electricity, but purchasing it from the energy market at very high prices, thanks to frigid temperatures overnight.
You can help Beat the Peak by delaying the use of major appliances like dishwashers, washing machines, clothes dryers and hot water. You can also turn your thermostat down three degrees.
