Vermont Business Magazine Vermont Electric Cooperative is encouraging its members to conserve energy on Wednesday, July 29 and Thursday, July 30 between the hours of 1 pm and 6 pm when demand for electricity is expected to spike as a result of high temperatures throughout New England.
Here is what you can do to help beat the peak:
• Turn off all unnecessary lights.
• Delay use of major appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines, and clothes dryers.
• Raise your thermostat or air conditioner by 3 degrees.
