Due to forecasted low temperatures across our region, electricity demand is expected to be high over the next several days. During such high use periods, Bryan Municipal Utilities (BMU) can establish capacity and transmission peak demands that impact your electric bill for the next year. To help keep electric bills lower, BMU asks customers to voluntarily reduce energy use tomorrow morning from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.
We want to stress that this is also just a Peak Alert and we do not anticipate any of the rolling blackouts that are happening across the south.
How Can You Help?
By taking these simple steps, you can help save money on your electric bills:
o Turn off any unnecessary lights and appliances
o Unplug computers and chargers
o Set heating thermostats to the lowest comfortable setting
o Open window blinds or drapes to utilize the sun’s heat
o Shift household chores, like doing laundry or using the dishwasher, to avoid these hours
Collectively, small efforts can make a difference. By working together, we can help each of us save money on our electric bills. Customers with questions are encouraged to contact BMU at 419-633-6100.
