Give your large appliances a break, turn the thermostat up a few degrees and shut off unnecessary lights…

That’s the advice from the Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation and Berlin Electric as temperatures and humidity start to soar.

DEMEC, which serves several communities with electricity, has issued a Power Savers Alert for Thursday July 2nd from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Berlin Electric’s Tweak Our Peak Alert runs from 2:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Thursday July 2nd and again Monday July 6th.
