December 23, 2022 (Bowling Green, Ky) Emergency conditions on the TVA power system have reduced the amount of power available to local power companies. Warren RECC is immediately requesting members reduce all non-essential electric usage to prevent periodic interruptions of your power.
With dangerously cold temperatures, public safety is our first concern. We do not recommend turning your thermostat down significantly, but a degree or two can make a big difference. Other ways to reduce electric usage include delaying using heat-producing appliances like stovetops, ovens, and dryers. Additionally, opening window coverings on the sunny side of the house to let in sunlight during the warmest parts of the day can help save electricity.
During temperature extremes, don’t forget to check on relatives, friends and neighbors to ensure their safety. Pets and livestock will also need a helping hand to remain safe.
