This is the second call of the 2012 season for a peak demand hour. If you are able to reduce, reschedule, or curtail your use of electricity between 2PM - 5PM on July 17th, you will help to reduce electricity costs to all Concord Light customers.
Based on weather and ISO (Independent System Operator) New England forecasts for electricity demand, we may experience a peak demand on Tuesday, 7/17, from 4PM – 5PM.
You might consider turning up your AC thermostat a few degrees or curtailing use of things such as dehumidifiers, 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. You could add a little fun into the peak demand energy conservation by planning a picnic dinner, or cooking on the grill.
Please share this information with family and friends in Concord who may also want to help.
