Alert: Community Energy Savings Day Today – August 10, 2020

Posted on: August 10th, 2020 No Comments

Help by Using Less Energy Between 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM

What is a Community Energy Savings Day?

Community Energy Savings Days are called when the demand for electricity is expected to be high. High electricity demand can occur during very hot or very cold weather, when homes and businesses are using high amounts of electricity at the same time.

When a Community Energy Savings Day is called, you can help decrease the demand by using less energy during peak demand times. If customers use less energy during times of peak demand, we can spread demand more evenly on the network, reduce the cost of providing energy and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases generated.

Following are a few ways to help reduce electricity usage during Community Energy Savings Days:

Step 1:    Sign up to receive alerts. You can receive alerts you can like/follow us on Facebook, Nextdoor, and Twitter or sign up for Piqua ALERT. We will make every attempt to send an alert prior to the Community Energy Savings Day.

Step 2:    When a Community Energy Savings Day is called, use less energy during the designated times.

  • In the summer, close your window blinds or drapes to block the sun’s heat and then raise your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher.
  • Shift household chores, like doing laundry or using the dishwasher, to non-peak hours.
