Bryan Municipal Utilities has received notification to reduce local electric loads from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Today. TODAY’S Forecasted loads are expected to exceed yesterday’s 1CP levels in the AEP region!
AMP recommends reducing local electric loads to avoid additional capacity charges from the PJM Interconnection regional transmission operator and also transmission costs from American Electric Power (AEP).
We respectfully request your voluntary assistance in reducing peak electric demands from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. today, as much as you can. If you have processes that can be interrupted, operated at reduced levels for a few hours, or scheduled to a different time without creating major business disruptions, it will help make a difference. If you can simply turn off any unnecessary lights, air compressors, computers or other electrically-powered equipment, or set cooling thermostats to the highest comfortable temperature, it will also help. Collectively, even small efforts can make an impact.
Thank you for Any conservation efforts you are able to provide during these critical hours. As a municipal electric system, owned by its citizens and customers, it is upon each of us to keep the electric rates for all customers of Bryan as low as possible. We have the opportunity to make a difference in Our Electric Utility and the rates by conserving energy during the periods of 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Today to help keep electric costs down for the City of Bryan.
If you have any questions regarding this request, feel free to contact us at 419-633-6100.
