Please conserve power
Jimmy Robertson of Newport Utilities(NU) is again calling on residents to conserve power for the rest of the week. He says the anticipated morning low temperatures will naturally increase NU's peak load due to greater heating needs. "We want our customers to help to continue to manage the system peak by reducing any non-essential loads and scheduling tasks that require significant power usage at a time later in the day after the projected peak time," he says. Robertson said TVA has indicated they may call for voluntary reductions on Wednesday & Thursday, but he is making the announcement today so that customers will be able to prepare for those cold mornings. He advises that customers shower during the evening hours and prepare a breakfast that requires less cooking in an effort to reduce the system peak demand. NU is asking customers to make an effort to reduce power loads between the peak hours of 6:30am to 9:30am each morning this week. Robertson also expressed appreciation for those who have already conserved power on recent cold mornings. "Your response to our load reduction requests this month have been successful in keeping the system peak in check. Thanks to everyone for making the requested adjustments," Robertson said.
