Our South Texas summers are brutal, and often require us to run all of our power plants in order to meet energy needs. As electricity demand goes up, we have an opportunity to make a difference in our community by conserving energy.
Our Reduce My Use program provides you and your neighbors the opportunity to help conserve electricity and save money on hot summer days.
Reduce My Use days can occur when our electric system reaches peak demand. This happens several times during the summer months, when the outside temperatures reach extreme highs. Energy peak demand times typically happen between the hours of 3pm and 7pm, Monday through Friday.
How can you save on a Reduce My Use Day:
Participation in Reduce My Use is voluntary and all notifications and information will be delivered to your designated email and telephone number. If you do not wish to receive these communications or participate in the program for any reason, you may opt out at any time by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-992-4573.
What is the purpose of the program?
The purpose of the Reduce My Use program is to encourage our community to reduce energy during peak event days, which happen when electricity use is higher than usual. The purpose of these communications is to provide notifications that will help lower energy demand on a largescale. This not only saves you energy and money, but also keeps us from powering up extra energy resources (such as additional power plants) to meet demand.
How was I selected to be part of this program?
You were randomly chosen to receive communications that will help you save energy and money.
Can I opt out of the program?
Yes. We provide the peak event program to help you take control of your energy use and save money. However, if you would like to opt out, you can unsubscribe from emails you are receiving, or select the option in the phone notification to opt out. We can also remove you from receiving email and/or phone notifications now.
