High heat alert, August 2016

::High heat alert::
Today’s forecast calls for extremely high temperatures, which could put a strain on our region’s electric grid as people attempt to cool their homes and businesses. Please reduce your own electricity use as much as possible, while not putting your health at risk.

The most crucial hours are between 1 and 8 pm. During this time we suggest turning up your thermostat to 78 degrees and turning off unnecessary lights and appliances. We appreciate your cooperation.
