Please conserve energy for the next 2 days. Due to the current widespread and extreme cold weather conditions, the Southwest Power Pool (SPP) is requesting the region’s consumers to conserve energy to help reduce the demands on the power grid.
This request goes into effect beginning at midnight central time on Monday, Feb. 15 for 48 hours to mitigate the risk of widespread and extended power outages throughout our region. All electric cooperative consumers in our region are affected by this event.
Tips to conserve energy include turning your thermostat down a few degrees, delaying the use of large appliances and turning off unnecessary lights and appliances. If we all do our part, we can help avoid power outages during this extreme cold.
SPP is a regional transmission organization that oversees the bulk electric grid and wholesale power market in the central United States on behalf of a diverse group of utilities and transmission companies in 17 states.
Please contact the cooperative office with questions.
