Choptank Electric Issues Beat The Peak Alert For Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

47 ABC - With temperatures on the rise, expecting to hit the mid 90s in some areas of the peninsula, so is power consumption. Choptank Electric Cooperative Inc., is asking members to "beat the peak" on Wednesday, July 2nd, between 4:00 and 6:00 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.
