HELP BEAT THE PEAK
Keeping our rates low is one of our commitments to you. But did you know helping us keep rates low can be as simple as rescheduling your laundry washing?
That’s right! During the hottest days of the summer, the distribution system has to work very hard to meet the demand for power. On these peak energy days—especially if you are not home to enjoy it—be sure your inside temperature is set to 78 degrees. Using a programmable or smart thermostat is a great way to take care of this!
Schedule your laundry, dishwasher, and EV charging outside peak energy demand times, before 3 p.m. and after 8 p.m. Keep an eye on our Facebook page or website this summer. We will have alerts on days we expect high demand.
CGEMC is the third-lowest energy cost provider in the state, and with your help, we can keep delivering the power you need at a rate you will love!
