Frigid temperatures have once again forced TVA to issue a power supply alert that will remain in effect through noon Friday.
TVA has requested the 155 local power companies in the Tennessee Valley, including Tri-County Electric, to identify and implement actions for curtailment of nonessential loads to avoid firm load reduction.
Consumers are urged to voluntarily conserve electricity to the maximum extent possible. In addition to lowering the thermostat on heat pumps, please postpone using electric appliances such as dishwashers, dryers and cooking equipment and
turn off any nonessential lights and electrical equipment.
Warmer temperatures are expected for the weekend before another Arctic front comes through early next week. Thank you for assisting Tri-County Electric and TVA with electricity conservation during this power supply alert.
