SPRINGFIELD ELECTRIC AND TVA ASKS CUSTOMERS FOR VOLUNTARY REDUCTIONS IN POWER USE
The continued freezing temperatures has caused a tight power supply situation. Springfield Electric Department and TVA are requesting all residential, commercial and industrial customers to conserve electricity usage as much as possible until further notice.
This voluntary reduction is needed to help relieve stress on the electric system and assure a continued supply of power throughout the winter. Customers are requested to:
Set thermostats at 68 degrees or lower.
Turn off all non-essential lighting, appliances, and processes.
Limit all cooking, especially in the oven, during the daytime.
Postpone all uses of hot water and electric dryers during the daytime.
Again, this is a temporary measure to reduce power consumption and bring relief to the electric system. Status reports on the power supply situation will be provided on Smokey Barn News. We appreciate your cooperation.
