WMDT 47 NEWS -Even though fall is here on the Shore, the humidity is too, and authorities expect power consumption to be up today. Choptank Electric is asking customers to beat the peak on Wednesday between 5 and 8 PM.
You can help by turning off unnecessary lights, and waiting until later to use large appliances, like your dishwasher, or washing machine. You can also turn up your thermostat a few degrees to have your air conditioner work less.
During these peak times energy is more expensive, so saving energy means saving money.
