TVA is experiencing a strain on its electric grid and is asking KUB customers to conserve energy.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has asked all power customers in the Tennessee Valley to reduce their electricity use as much as possible as extremely high temperatures region-wide cause electric demand to increase.

Customers are asked to conserve energy to help KUB and other local power providers continue to deliver reliable service. KUB and others are cutting back their own use as well.

Until further notice, KUB customers are asked to take the following measures:

  • Eliminate all non-essential use of electricity, such as decorative indoor and outdoor lighting used for hallways, walkways, and home patios.
  • Set your thermostat as low as comfortably possible. Start at 75 degrees, and keep in mind that each degree higher could lower your energy use by 10-15 percent.
  • Postpone using large electrical appliances such as dishwashers, dryers, and cooking equipment. If you do need to use large appliances, use them early in the morning or late at night when electricity demand is lower.
  • Businesses should minimize lighting and turn off all office equipment that is not in use of necessary.
