Extreme Cold Increased Power Usage
We would like members to be aware that power usage has been higher in the past several days due to the extreme cold weather our area experienced between Jan. 1 and Feb. 7. Our area experienced 28 days with temperature lows in the 20s and 30s. Thirteen of those days had lows below freezing, with seven days in the 20s.
To reduce power consumption, consider turning your thermostat down to 65 degrees, check ductwork for leaks and seal up any drafts around doors or windows.
Albemarle EMC strives to safely deliver reliable power and related energy solutions to our members and local communities by providing the highest value through service excellence.
