Since temperatures are still extremely cold and energy use is high, we’re issuing the second beat the peak alert of the day for 6-8 a.m. this morning (Tuesday January 22).. Please remember this is a voluntary program. When members conserve during times of peak energy use, the Co-op’s cost for power drops.
How to Conserve:
- In winter, lower your thermostat a few degrees
- Turn off any unnecessary lights
- Delay the use of major appliances like dishwashers and dryers until after the alert time has passed
- Delay the use of hot water
By lowering the amount of power being consumed across the system when energy prices are high, you are helping to lower the Co-op’s cost for power. Because A&N Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit utility, those savings are passed on to you in the form of affordable rates. Please note: You will not see a credit on your bill for conserving energy nor will you be charged more for power if you do not conserve. This is a voluntary program, which benefits all Co-op members.
