SWEAT BILLS


Don’t Summer Electric


When it is sweltering outside, everyone wants to keep cool in- doors, so they all crank the air conditioning up at the same time. This creates a greater demand for electricity than when the weather is milder and homeowners can open their windows or leave the a/c on a less-intense setting. When that happens, power lines tend to heat and expand,


which in turn can force the lines to sag a bit and touch tree limbs and branches. That contact can result in short circuits.


At the same time, cables, switches, and other equipment react to the high

Plus, lightning strikes are more common when it is hot outside. If lightning strikes the electric cooperative’s equipment, it can cause them to malfunction, and the system will not be able to keep up with demand until it is repaired. Your electric cooperative can not always prevent outages caused by extra hot weather and super-high demand. Still, our crews are trained to restore ser- vice as quickly and as safely as possible.

As temperatures rise, there are plenty of things you can do to save energy and trim your electric bill.


Raise your thermostat a couple of degrees—78° is the most efficient setting. Ceiling fans are a great way to move air around the house, and you can shade your electric bill by planting trees on the south side of your home.


Don’t sweat summer electric bills—check out www.EnergySavers.gov for more ways to save!
