Village of Genoa calls on customers to voluntarily reduce electric usage

For Immediate Release …Wednesday, July 17, 2019
Village of Genoa calls on customers to voluntarily reduce electric usage on Friday, July 19

As temperatures are expected to reach well into the 90’s on Friday, July 19, Genoa Public Works is calling on customers to voluntarily reduce their electric usage during the hours of 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
A portion of Genoa Public Works rates are the result of what is known as transmission charges, which are based off community-wide electric demand on the hottest and coldest days of the year — demand peaks. By lowering electric usage on these days, customers can help to keep electric rates lower in the future.
“Once the community’s electric demand rises to peak levels, higher charges get locked into place,” said Mr. Gladden, Village Administrator. “By conserving energy as a community, we can avoid letting these charges get too far out of hand and work to keep prices down for everyone.”
Customers can lower their electric usage by undertaking some of the following simple conservation measures:

• Shutting off lights when you leave a room

• Raising the thermostat by several degrees

• Closing curtains and blinds

• Saving laundry, dishes and other household chores until
later in the evening

• Turning off and unplugging unused electronics and
appliances

• Grilling out instead of cooking indoors
