Delaware & Choptank Electric Co-ops Issue Beat the Peak Alert

Mattress Peddlers

Delaware & Choptank Electric Cooperatives have issued a Beat the Peak Alert for this afternoon (Thursday), as temperatures and humidity continue to rise.

Between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., the Co-ops ask members to conserve electricity usage. Possible steps include setting your air conditioner thermostat so it doesn’t run as often, putting off the use of large appliance such as washers, dryers and dishwashers and turning off unnecessary lights.

DEC & Choptank purchase more expensive energy during times of high, or peak, demand.
