EVERSOURCE ANNOUNCEMENT – HEAT WAVE ALERT

Eversource is Prepared for Extended High Heat and Increased Electricity Demand

Energy company offers ways to keep cool and save energy

 

BERLIN, Conn. (July 16, 2019) – With sweltering heat and high humidity across the region over the next several days, air conditioners and fans are expected to be working overtime. Though high electricity usage during a heat wave can put a strain on the electric system, Eversource is prepared to meet that increased demand and its crews are ready to respond to any outages or issues that arise.

“We prepare year-round to meet the increased demand and to ensure that our system is ready to handle additional electricity needs that come with a heat wave,” said Eversource President of Regional Electric Operations Craig Hallstrom. “This includes conducting detailed inspections of the overhead and underground systems in advance of the extreme heat to detect and resolve any issues ahead of time so that our customers have the energy they need for every moment of their lives, even in the face of potentially record-breaking heat.”                                         

As the heat wave approaches, Eversource offers these common-sense hot weather tips to help customers stay comfortable, save energy and money on their electric bills during this period of high demand:

 

Increase the temperature on air conditioners.  Keep air conditioners set at a moderate temperature throughout the day as cranking the unit up after work uses more electricity. Programmable thermostats or temperature timers can also help keep costs manageable, especially when away from home.

Keep air conditioner filters and coils clean.  Clean air conditioner filters and coils at least every three months. Dirty filters block air flow, reducing efficiency and making it harder to deliver the cool air.

Don’t block air flow.  Keep air vents clear of obstructions such as furniture, curtains and rugs.  For those with central air and floor vents, consider using vent deflectors to direct and increase the reach of cooled air.

Seal home cracks and gaps.  Seal cracks or gaps in walls and outlets, and window and door frames, to keep cool air from escaping and letting hot air in. 

Save major appliance use until the evening. Help conserve energy by using appliances like clothes washers and dryers early in the morning or late in the evening, when there is less demand on the electric system.

 

Eversource (NYSE: ES) transmits and delivers electricity to 1.2 million customers in 149 cities and towns and provides natural gas to 226,000 customers in 72 communities in Connecticut. Recognized in 2015 as a top-ranked “green” utility in the U.S. by Newsweek magazine, Eversource harnesses the commitment of its approximately 8,000 employees across three states to build a single, united company around the mission of delivering reliable energy and superior customer service.  For more information, please visit our website (www.eversource.com) and follow us on Twitter (@EversourceCT) and Facebook (facebook.com/EversourceCT).
