WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM 24 UCW JULY 14-20, 2021 Dog Days of Summer As summer sizzles on, PWC reminds you to take extra care to save power and water. Follow these tips to lower your bills! • Conserve power during Summer Peak Hours (3-7 pm weekdays). Do laundry, run the dishwasher, etc. during Off-Peak Hours when electric rates are 35% lower. • Keep your A/C set at 78° (higher when you're not home). A programmable thermostat will help. • Use fans and close blinds/curtains to keep the sun out. • Service your cooling system and change filters monthly. • Follow the Odd-Even schedule for watering with automatic/unattended sprinklers (only water when you need to). Install a rain sensor on your sprinkler system to avoid watering on rainy days. • Check for/fix leaks in hose faucets. Be sure you always turn them all the way off. Find more tips, and learn about PWC incentives for taking steps to conserve power and water at faypwc.com. Customer Focused. Community Strong.
