PUC: Electric Conservation Needed

From the PUC:

In order to avoid unnecessary and costly electricity outages, the PUC and ERCOT are asking electric customers to make a conscious effort to conserve electricity during these very hot days, especially during peak demand hours of 3 to 7 p.m.  We would appreciate it very much if all electric customers–residential, commercial, government, and industrial–could take three simple steps:

1.  Turn thermostats in buildings up two or three degrees (75 to 78 degrees) and block direct sun by closing blinds or drapes;

2.  Turn off lights, TVs, computers, or other electrical equipment when not in use;

3.  Run dishwashers, laundry equipment, and pool pumps during non-peak demand hours like mornings or evenings after 7 p.m.
