Sanford, N.C., February 18, 2015 – Even though Central Electric has an adequate power supply to handle extreme temperatures, electric cooperatives across the state are calling on members to voluntarily conserve electricity as much as possible on Thursday and Friday. Central EMC believes the move will prevent unnecessary strain on energy resources.
Members can help reduce demand on the electric system by:
- Turning off unnecessary lights
- Closing blinds or drapes
- Lowering thermostats
- Turning off unnecessary electronic equipment
- Postponing use of washer and dryer, if possible
Central Electric thanks members for their patience and their help during the rough winter weather ahead. North Carolina’s electric cooperatives serve more than 2.5 million people in 93 of the state’s 100 counties.
