Liberty Utilities Central has issued a peak advisory

Attention Liberty electric customers: We’re requesting your help. Liberty has issued a peak advisory for all Liberty electric customers for Thursday and Friday, July 7 and 8, due to ongoing extreme heat resulting in high energy demand. 

Liberty asks that customers voluntarily reduce electricity use throughout the day and particularly between the hours of noon and 8 p.m. 

Conserving energy supports service reliability by helping Liberty to avoid outages and reduces costs for customers, as fuel costs for energy generation may rise during peak energy demand.
Suggestions for conserving energy include the following:

- Set thermostats to 78 degrees or as high as comfortable. Please note: Customers who are elderly or have medical conditions complicated by the heat should not raise their thermostat.

- Postpone heat-producing energy use such as cooking and using your washing machine, electric dryer, or dishwasher.

- Turn off and unplug fans, computers, monitors, chargers, printers, and televisions during periods of non-use.

- Turn off nonessential lights.

- Postpone all nonessential energy use.

We will continue to monitor the weather and provide updates to our customers. Learn more at https://bit.ly/3jQqnH8
