NOTICE: Electric load management

Published

on

The Town of Front Royal’s Energy Services Department requests electric customers to voluntarily reduce energy consumption today, August 27 through Wednesday, August 29 from 2:00pm – 6:00pm as temperatures are expected to reach well into the 90’s in the next few days.

The Town of Front Royal’s electric customers are being asked to conserve power. If we can conserve during these peak hours, we can save on transmission and capacity costs, and help keep the electricity rates low.

Customers can take simple conservation steps such as: 

– turning off lights when not needed

– avoid using ovens/stoves from 2:00pm-6:00pm

– unplugging small appliances and electric chargers

– raising the air conditioner thermostat a degree or two

– doing laundry and other household chores that require hot water or electricity during hours other than 2:00pm-6:00pm

– turning off televisions, computers, radios and other electronic devices when not being used.

If you have any questions/concerns please call the Energy Services Department at (540) 635-3027, Monday – Friday, 7:00am – 3:30pm

The Town of Front Royal will observe Halloween on Thursday, October 31, 2019, between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children while enjoying the Halloween festivities.

Early forecasts are calling for precipitation which will further decrease visibility.
