TEC ANNOUNCES PEAK ENERGY ALERT


Wed, Aug 21st, 2013
Posted in Rushford Business Announcements

Rushford, MN (10:30 a.m. Aug. 21, 2013)— Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TEC) is issuing a peak energy alert to address the high demand for electricity in the regional power market. TEC asks members to help by reducing their electric use.

When peak energy alerts are announced energy conservation is critical, particularly between the hours of 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.

TEC will begin full load control from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. This includes peak alert account generators, manual shut down accounts and irrigators. Members participating in the cooperative’s load management programs for water heaters and air conditioners will also be controlled. Members can check out the load control status links on TEC’s website, www.tec.coop, for specific control parameters.

Everyone, whether a cooperative member or not, can help reduce energy use by practicing a few simple conservation measures:

Set thermostats no lower than 78 degrees. Use a programmable thermostat with your air conditioner to adjust the setting at night or when no one is home.

Use ceiling and portable fans to enhance the cooling ability of your air conditioner. Even mild air movement can make you feel cooler.

Draw shades or blinds to prevent the sun from adding more heat to the room.

Try to avoid chores requiring electrical use such as running the dishwasher and doing laundry during peak energy use periods (11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays).

Make sure your air conditioner filters are clean for peak efficiency.



Also, be sure to take steps to stay cook and hydrated:

• Drink plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.

• Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light colored clothing.

• Stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day.

• Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors.

• Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning.

• Never leave children or pets alone in enclosed vehicles.



TEC is a member-owned electric distribution cooperative serving three counties in Minnesota including Winona, Houston and Fillmore and parts of Olmsted and Mower counties in Minnesota and Howard, Winneshiek and Allamakee co .....
