RMU Customers Can Take Simple Steps to Conserve Energy
Rochelle, IL – 1/28/2014
RMU is continuously monitoring the increased energy requirements for heating and other equipment usage during the cold weather. While there is no immediate need for conservation, the demand for electricity is expected to be highest Tuesday (1/28/2014), especially between 6 am until 10 am and 5 pm until 9 pm.
Electricity customers can take simple steps to help conserve energy:
- Set thermostats lower than usual, if health permits.
- Postpone using major electric appliances such as stoves, dishwashers and clothes dryers until mid-day or after 9:00 pm, when the demand for electricity decreases.
- Turn off electric lights and appliances that you do not need or are not using.
Conserving electricity will help ensure adequate power supplies for everyone.
