Pepco Activates Kilowatchers Club Programs

Programs Reduce Electricity Demand Due to Unseasonable Heat

For Immediate Release
July 29, 2002

At 3:45 p.m. today, Pepco activated its Kilowatchers Club programs to reduce demand for electricity this afternoon due to the region`s hot spell.

More than 207,000 residential customers volunteer to allow Pepco to cycle their air conditioners off-and-on periodically on weekday afternoons for no longer than six hours.

Other voluntary conservation actions Pepco requests at this time include:

  • Close curtains and blinds to keep the sun out and retain cooler air inside your home.
  • Do not open refrigerators or freezers and turn off all unnecessary lights.
  • Postpone using major heat-producing appliances like electric stoves and clothes dryers until the cooler evening hours.
  • Save computer information frequently.
