Save energy during peak usage hours from 3 to 7 p.m.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), system operator for the state’s bulk transmission grid, is asking consumers and businesses to reduce their electricity use during peak electricity hours from 3 to 7 p.m. July 14. Continued hot weather may lead to similar requests.

High temperatures exceeding 100 degrees have led to increased use of electricity to keep air conditioners and appliances operating non-stop. This, of course, increases demand and can lead to brown-outs or even blackouts as demand exceeds operating capacity.

No loss of service is expected at UNT.

The UNT SMART project activity has installed motion-detection lighting switches in many campus buildings, and Facilities and Construction regularly monitors conservation efforts in campus buildings. However, lights, appliances and other non-essential electricity users should be turned off at day's end.
