Based on weather conditions and the most recent ISO (Independent System
Operator) predictions, there is a good chance that demand for electricity will be higher today than last year's peak. The ISO is forecasting less demand on Wednesday and for the remainder of the week, so it looks like today will also be the peak for the week.
The forecast is for the peak hour to be from 3-4 PM today so if you are able to reduce, reschedule or curtail your use of electricity between the hours of 1PM and 4PM you would be helping to reduce electricity costs to all Concord Light customers.
Between 1PM and 4PM today, you might consider turning up your air conditioning thermostat a few degrees, curtailing the use of electricity on things such as pool pumps, dryers, and washing machines. Another way to save is to reschedule use of these appliances to either before or after the anticipated peak hours.
Thanks again for participating in our effort to reduce Concord's summer electrical peak.
