Laclede Electric members are asked to conserve electricity on Thursday, June 16, and Friday, June 17, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Members can help conserve energy by:
- Raise the thermostat a few degrees
- Limit the use of large appliances
- Turn off unnecessary lights
Associated Electric Cooperative notified member systems on June 14 that energy supplies may be tight on June 16 and 17. Associated Electric is the power supplier for six regional transmission cooperatives and 51 distribution cooperatives, including Laclede Electric Cooperative.
The conservation appeal was triggered by an unseasonably hot weather pattern, unplanned outages at three Associated generating units, and projected declining wind power for Thursday and Friday. Please remember to keep safety first.
We will remain in contact with our power supplier as they work through this weather event and do everything possible to ensure safe and reliable power for members.
