There will be high demands made on the grid by the hot weather and there are things everyone can do to help conserve power during peak hours. The following are just a few small steps we can make a difference:

1. Turn of all unnecessary lights, appliances, and electronic equipment
2. When at home, close blinds and drapes that get direct sunlight, set air-conditioning thermostats to 78 degrees or higher and use fans
3. When leaving the home set air condition thermostats to 85 degrees and turn off all fans. Block the sun by closing blinds or drapes with direct sunlight.
4. Do not use dishwasher, laundry equipment, hair dryers, coffee makers, or other home appliances during the peak hours of 3 to 7pm.
5. Avoid opening refrigerators or freezers than necessary.
6. Use microwaves for cooking instead of electric range or ovens.
7. Set your pool pump to run in the early morning or evening instead of the afternoon.

We can all do our part to conserve on energy, lessen the demand on power, and insure that the rolling power blackouts we’ve had in the past are a thing of the past. Please email rduron@servantenergy.com if you need power for you facility or need an energy partner for your firm. Here to Serve!
