Help Concord Conserve Electricity - Peak Hours for 8/17/09 and 8/18/09
Report #4.0                                                                                         8/14/09
Good Afternoon:
Based on current weather conditions and the most recent ISO (Independent System Operator) electricity forecast for Monday and Tuesday next week, 8/17/09-8/18/09, there is a reasonable chance New England may hit the highest hourly peak for this summer.  They are also predicting electricity use will drop off on Wednesday, 8/19/09 due to cooler temperatures.
The ISO does not forecast the expected peak hour until two days before the event so we will not know the peak hour forecasted for Monday (8/17/09) until that morning.  We will send you an email at that time.  However, based on past experience, there is an excellent chance the hour will occur between 2 PM and 5 PM on Monday (8/17/09) and Tuesday (8/18/09).
So if you are able to reduce, reschedule or curtail your use of electricity between those hours you would be helping to reduce electricity costs to all Concord Light customers. 
Between the above hours 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 and have a great weekend.
