Help Kiamichi Electric "Beat the Peak" Use less energy during peak hours from 3 pm to 8 pm


When you use electricity can determine your future electric rates, especially when you’re using it at the same time as everyone else. When the majority of Kiamichi Electric members use a lot of electricity at once, it creates what is known as a "peak demand." Wholesale electricity prices from your co-op's power suppliers are based in part on this peak, so it’s better for everyone to try to keep these peaks as low as possible.


Kiamichi Electric system peaks tend to occur between 3 pm and 8 pm in July and August. You can help Kiamichi Electric control costs by conserving energy during this period of time.There are several ways you can do this and remain cool and comfortable:


• Set your thermostat to 78°F. or higher to reduce the load on your a/c or heat pump.Use ceiling fans and close drapes to block the sun.

iamichi Electric Cooperative's Operation Roundup program provides scholarships to teens


Since its inception, Operation Roundup has provided thousands of dollars to local students from virtually every community in Kiamichi Electric service territory.


Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic achievement, leadership, financial need, and their proven ambition to further their education. Scholarships are available for first and second-year college students. The funds may be used at scholarship funds at any technical school, junior college or university.


Interested teens are encouraged to apply for scholarships in the spring.


More details on the scholarship program and how to apply, are found on the Kiamichi Electric website at www.kiamichielectric.org.


• Use appliances like clothes washers and dryers,dishwashers and other large appliances sparingly. If you must use them during peak periods, try to limit usage to one appliance at a time.


•Delay using hot water so the demand for your water heater is less during the peak times.


• Avoid using your oven. It raises the temperature inyour home and results in longer cycle times for your a/c.
