Help Concord Conserve Electricity - Peak Hours for 8/5/2009
Report #2.0                                                                                         8/4/09


Good Afternoon:


Based on current weather conditions and the most recent ISO (Independent System Operator) electricity forecast for 8/5/2009, there is a reasonable chance New England may hit the highest hourly peak so far this summer.


The forecast indicates a peak of 22,610 megawatts, last Augusts’ peak was 22,164, which will occur between 2 & 3 PM on Wednesday.  So if you are able to reduce, reschedule or curtail your use of electricity between the hours of 2 PM and 5 PM you would be helping to reduce electricity costs to all Concord Light customers.  The longer term forecast indicates lower peaks the rest of the week and weekend.


Between the hours of 2 & 5 PM tomorrow you might consider turning up your air conditioning thermostat a few degrees, curtailing the use of electricity such as dryers, washing machines, pool pumps or simply rescheduling their use either before or after the anticipated peak period.


Thanks again for participating in our effort to reduce the summer electrical peak.
