[ARCHIVED] Peak Electricity Day is Possible for Today

The current weather forecast confirms a peak electricity day is possible for today, Thursday August 26th from 4PM to 7PM. Help keep cost down for all CMLP customers by doing the following during peak hours:

•           turn your A/C up a few degrees

•           turn off lights anywhere they are not needed and dim others if they are dimmable

•           postpone use of pool pumps, dryers, washing machines, and other appliances

•           reduce plug load by turning off computers, televisions, etc.

•           Cook dinner on the grill or have a picnic supper

•           Do not charge an electric vehicle during a peak demand event

•           Pre-cool your home and then let it coast without A/C until after the peak demand event

•           Use fans instead of or in addition to A/C as fans use much less electricity than air conditioning

•           Close blinds on windows facing the sun

•           Use smart power strips to turn off multiple devices with one touch

•           Get an energy assessment for your home or business to see if there are more electricity-saving opportunities.
