Summer Peak Alert!!!

*Member Request*

Barton County Electric Cooperative is requesting that our members voluntarily conserve electricity on Thursday and Friday of this week, during the hours of 2:00pm to 8:00pm. This energy conservation request comes as a result of the predicted high temperatures combined with energy pressure in our region, which could result in an energy shortage. Here are a few ways to reduce your energy consumption during this period:

1. Raise your thermostat a few degrees
2. Turn off all lights and devices when not in use
3. Limit the use of large appliances, such as washer/dryer, stove, and water heater
