Heat Wave Significantly Increases Energy Usage
The heat wave encompassing our region has resulted in significant energy usage. A large portion of that is attributed to air conditioner use in homes and businesses. We may be on a pace which would be record-breaking energy usage on the Dairyland system.
We encourage cooperative members in the Dairyland system to conserve as much as possible during this period of high energy use, especially between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. when usage is highest and power the most costly.
