Beat the Peak Alert Issued for Thursday

Posted: Dec 27, 2017 1:25 PM Updated:

Because of the extreme cold and high demand, Delaware Electric and Choptank Electric cooperatives are asking their members to voluntarily conserve or limit energy usage from 7-8 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 28.   

According to the co-ops, energy usage is expected to peak during the aforementioned period of time. However, when members conserve during times of peak energy use, the co-ops' cost for power drops.

During the aforementioned "Beat the Peak" period, the co-ops are asking their members to lower their thermostats a few degrees, turn off all unnecessary lights and delay the use of major appliances like dishwashers and dryers until after the alert time has passed.
