This is the fourth call of the 2013 summer season for a peak demand hour. Based on the late-changing ISO (Independent System Operator) New England forecasts for electricity demand and continued high temperatures today, we expect a peak demand hour again today (Friday, 7/19) between 1PM – 5PM.
If you are able to reduce or reschedule use of electricity during this time, you will help to reduce electricity costs to all Concord Light customers. You might consider:
- turning up your A/C a few degrees
- curtailing the use of electricity on pool pumps, dryers, and washing machines
- planning a picnic supper, or cooking dinner on the grill
- re-schedule use of appliances to either before or after the anticipated peak hours
