Central Electric Cooperative is encouraging residents to conserve energy Tuesday, July 9 during peak hours of electricity demand to help stabilize future power costs.

The electricity supplier expects a high energy demand from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“Small adjustments in when, where, and how you use electricity do make a difference in energy costs during high-demand periods,” the electric company said in a Tuesday morning alert.

To “beat the peak,” residents can conserve power by turning off non-essential electric items, raising the thermostat a few degrees and shifting the the use of items such as dehumidifiers, pool pumps and electric appliances to hours outside of the peak period.
