ENERGY SAVING TIPS
| Using electricity wisely means using it efficiently but also using it at times of the day when demand is typically lower. On weekdays, peak demand occurs in the late afternoon or early evening as people return home from work. Delaying energy use until later in the evening or the weekend will help reduce these peaks. As well, consumers can also benefit from keeping energy use to a minimum during extreme hot and cold spells. |

Here you can watch as demand increases through the day and starts to decrease by early evening. In the end, saving electricity will deliver benefits to both your pocketbook and the environment.
