Due to the very hot weather predicted for today and tomorrow, the Park Ridge Electric Utility may hit system peaks. To help save on our annual electric costs, we are asking everyone in Park Ridge to consider voluntarily conserving electricity, between the hours of 3pm and 6pm. Some things you can do to reduce your consumption are turning off unnecessary lights, computers and appliances, and turn your air conditioning thermostat to a higher setting.
It is important to note that we are not experiencing any electric system emergencies. We are asking for you to consider this voluntary conservation to help reduce our peak load, which will help save the electric costs for all of our customers. Please do not make any changes to your thermostat settings if you have any health related concerns.
The Electric and Water Departments have been instituting conservation measures since July 1 and will continue to do so today and tomorrow.
Feel free to call the Park Ridge Electric Department at 201-391-2113 if you have any questions. Thank you.
