Energy Tips

Help enhance your PTR savings by making a few simple changes during a PTR event.

  • Delay using your electric range. Consider grilling or other dinner options that don’t use the stove/oven.
  • Turn off all incandescent light bulbs that would normally be on and not really needed.
  • Pre-cool your home and/or set your thermostat higher during the peak-time event.
  • Look for your phantom loads – all the little things you have plugged in that use energy even with they are OFF (TVs, rechargeable vacuums, game stations, chargers, etc.).
  • Postpone using your electric clothes dryer, clothes washing machine, and your dishwasher until after the event is over.
  • Turn off pool pumps and other non-essential electric motors.

The more you do, the more you can save.
