This week, The Coastal Bend will experience extreme weather with heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees. Do your part to reduce your electricity use during peak electricity hours from 3 to 7 p.m.
Consumers can help by shutting off unnecessary lights and electrical appliances between 3 and 7 p.m., and delaying laundry and other activities requiring electricity-consuming appliances until later in the evening.

Businesses should minimize the use of electric lighting and electricity-consuming equipment as much as possible. Large consumers of electricity should consider shutting down or reducing non-essential production processes.
