Turn off window AC units during Peak Time Savings Hours
During Peak Time Savings Hours, when energy demand is high throughout our region, the need to stay cool tends to increase as well. Small actions can earn a larger bill credit.
Step by step:
- Turn your window AC units off. If you have one or more window air conditioners, consider turning them off during Peak Time Savings Hours.
- Use fans instead of AC. Stay close to fans instead of using air conditioning to keep cool.
- Close curtains and blinds. Preventing sunlight from entering your home will keep your home cooler when your AC is off. Make sure to target windows that face south or west, which receive the most light in the summer.
