Today's Energy Thought

The following was sent out in an email today by Minnesota Valley Electric Coop to its customers. With temperatures reaching close to triple digits, whether you have MVEC as a utility provider or not, please heed the following:

  • Choose meals that don't contribute additional heat to your home (use a microwave or outdoor grill instead of an oven)
  • Delay running the dishwasher until after 10 p.m.
  • Delay washing clothes until after 10 p.m.
  • Turn off excess lights and keep curtains and draperies closed
  • Turn off computers and other electrical equipment when not in use.
  • Avoid leaving doors open for extended periods of time
  • If you're using an air conditioner, turn your thermostat up a couple degrees to save energy 
  • Consider traveling to a nearby mall, movie theater or restaurant to beat the heat
Stay cool and hydrated everyone, cooler temps are on the way.
