Tuesday 7/27 – Peak Usage
Arrowhead Electric Cooperative and its cooperative partners are appealing to our member-owners to reduce energy consumption on Tuesday, July 27th between the hours of 1:00pm and 8:00pm.  Forecasted high temperatures in the upper mid-west is causing regional utilities including Great River Energy to anticipate higher than average summer energy prices due to increased demand for electricity.

Arrowhead Electric Cooperative expects to pay nearly 45% more for all the electricity we purchase during this time compared to electricity purchased on other days of the year.  You can lower your cooperatives wholesale power costs and lessen the impact on your electric bill by reducing your electricity consumption on Tuesday, July 27th from 1:00pm to 8:00pm.  Waiting till after 8pm to run appliances such as the dishwasher and washing machine go along ways to helping reduce the impact of higher than normal electricity costs.

 For more information on how to conserve energy or to learn about Arrowhead Electric Conservation appeals please contact Arrowhead Electric Cooperative at 1-800-864-3744 or 663-7239.
