TVA Asking Customers To Turn Down Thermostat

tvaThe Tennessee Valley Authority is asking customers to conserve energy as some of the coldest temperatures in more than a year hit the area.
TVA said in a statement on Wednesday that the request is one step in helping to ensure that safe and reliable electricity is available. It is expecting peak demand for power to occur sometime early Thursday.
The statement says turning down a thermostat by a single degree can help and save customers up to 3 percent on power bills.
TVA says it is taking its own advice and lowering thermostats in all facilities, as are many local power companies.
The nation’s largest public utility serves 9 million people in parts of Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.
