Beating the Heat

3 August 2011 at 9:12:48 PM

This heat wave is extreme and requires our cooperation.. Please don't wash clothes (go to the Laundermat) , run the dryer  (construct a clothesline) or turn on any unnecessary appliances, fans, or water (those of you on wells) or cooking during these hours. Turn off all unnecessary stereos, computers, TV's, etc. Get with the program!

From my electric provider:

United Urges Members to Beat the Peak

ERCOT sets new record peak of 67,000+ MW

United Cooperative Services encourages members of the cooperative and the general public to beat the peak by implementing energy conservation measures during the peak usage hours of 3 p.m.-7 p.m. during the extended heat wave blanketing the North Texas region. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), which oversees the electric grid that allows for the flow of electricity to 23 million Texas consumers, set a new electricity demand record Aug. 1 with 66,867 megawatts (MW). It expects to break the record again this week and is pleading with the public to reduce electricity use during the afternoon peak timeframe.
