Late summer Beat The Peak issued for 9/21 and 9/22

Forecasted high temperatures in Middle Tennessee have prompted Duck River Electric Membership Corporation to issue a Beat The Peak alert for Thursday, Sept. 21, and Friday, Sept. 22, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. each day.

Demand for electricity during this period could drive up the cost of wholesale power unless conservation measures are taken.

Here’s how you can help:

  • Switch off unnecessary lights.
  • Delay the use of major appliances like the washer, dryer and dishwasher.
  • Boost the air conditioner thermostat up 3 degrees between these peak hours.
