BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Tennessee Valley Authority and local power companies have been taking action to maintain a stable power grid for everyone in the community.
The temperatures seen Friday brought an unprecedented demand for power. Around 5 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 24, the companies returned to using rotating 15-minute outages. You may have noticed power go off several times this morning, and this may be why.
As of around 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 24, Warren RECC says the TVA notified them that rotating outages are no longer necessary.
BGMU, the TVA and Warren RECC are still asking customers to conserve energy during low temperatures to further assist in this situation.
You can do your part by turning down the thermostat only 1 or 2 degrees. BGMU is also asking to delay doing laundry or running the dishwasher, oven or stovetop until the warmest part of the day. Finally, open window coverings, such as drapes, on the sunny side of homes to allow sun to help heat your home.
It is not recommended to make substantial adjustments in indoor temperature due to conditions outside.
