TVA requests voluntary electric load reduction

In response to a request from our power supplier, AEC is asking our members to voluntarily reduce electric consumption during peak hours during this frigid weather we’re experiencing. This notification went out from TVA to local power companies all across the Valley and will remain in effect until temperatures moderate. Until then, the most important way you can help is to lower your thermostat setting by a couple of degrees between the hours of 7 am and 11 am. Delaying laundry and automatic dishwashing will also help, as will turning off unnecessary lighting. We’ll let you know when the request has been lifted, but meanwhile we very much appreciate your help.
