With the extreme heat and high humidity, the Delaware Electric Cooperative has issued a Beat the Peak alert for today between 3 and 6 p.m.

Co-Op members are asked to conserve electricity usage during the three-hour period in order to help keep costs down for themselves and the Cooperative as well.

To lower your energy consumption during the alert period, you can turn off any unnecessary lights and delay using appliances like your dishwasher or washing machine. Turning the thermostat up a few degrees can also significantly lower how energy you're using.
