Can I help save electricity in other ways during peak demand periods?

Yes, members can:

  • Choose to use energy efficient settings such as using the air-dry mode on a dishwasher.
  • Lower the temperature setting on the clothes washer/dryer.
  • Run appliances during off-peak hours.
  • Reduce heat temperature by two to three degrees in the winter months or raise air-conditioner settings by two to three degrees in the summer months. (However, at no time should members adjust their heating or cooling settings to a point that could create risk to the health of members or their household.)
