Wait 'Til Late
The demand for electricity dramatically increases during the summer, causing higher electric costs.
A critical peak pricing advisory is NOT an emergency alert indicating a shortage of electricity or line overloading. It's an announcement for a time you can save money by voluntarily reducing electricity usage.
How can you help? When you hear the alert on the radio:
- Postpone use of appliances such as washers, dryers and dishwashers until after 10 pm
- Choose meals that don’t contribute additional heat to the home
- Draw curtains or shut blinds
- Set the air conditioner to 78 degrees
- Turn off excess lights

Urge Congress to Preserve Options including Geothermal Heat Pumps
Across the nation, electric cooperatives help our member-owners save energy and money by promoting the use of geothermal heat pumps. These superefficient heat pumps can cut home heating and cooling bills by up to 70 percent. Many electric cooperative member-owners install geothermal with assistance from the geothermal tax credit. The tax credit expires at the end of this year, jeopardizing the continued use of this energy efficient technology. Click here to help America's Electric Cooperatives encourage Members of Congress to extend the geothermal tax credit.
