The Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation wants its customers to use less of its product for a few hours today.
DEMEC has again issued a Power Savers Alert for 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
The alert follows:
POWER SAVERS ALERT:
Due to expected high temperatures and high energy demand, we are asking municipal electric customers to VOLUNTARILY reduce electric use today, Tuesday, July 28th. Power Saver Hours are from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. Customers are encouraged to lower their electric use during these hours to save money both now and later. Participation will lower electric use throughout the community and in return lower customers’ monthly electric costs and reduce utility energy costs over time. The more people that participate, the bigger the impact.
Customers can help by taking simple steps such as:
- Check the air filter for your home and/or window A/C unit to keep them running efficiently
- Consider adjusting your thermostat 2-3 degrees, even more if you won’t be home.
