As summer approaches, temperatures will be rising and weather conditions will begin to heat up.

 

When there’s higher demand for electricity than expected, as was the case in 2012, NPPD and local electric utilities may request that residents, businesses, irrigators and industry voluntarily cut back on the use of electrical power  for the remainder of the day  and only use electricity that is absolutely necessary.

 

NPPD’s Mark Becker says in those cases, they’ll issue a Tempoary Emergency Relief Message through radio stations  to request voluntary reduction of power.
