With subzero temperatures expected today, Indiana Michigan Power is asking consumers to be as conservative as possible with their electricity usage.
The power company says they are confident in their ability to provide power to all customers during the cold snap, but since the demand for electricity will be so high they are still requesting that consumers are conscious of their power consumption. I & M is asking customers to conserve power especially between 6am to 10am and 5pm to 9pm.
Some tips to save power include lowering thermostats, turning off any lights and appliances not in use, and postponing use of major electrical appliances such as dishwashers and dryers.
