Extreme cold impacts load control
January 30, 2019
Minnesotans are experiencing a historic weather event this week with bitterly cold temperatures and wind chills. In weather like this, mechanical systems are put to the test.
When demand for electricity is high, your Dual Fuel electric heating source can be shut off up to 12 hours at a time. Maintaining an adequate backup system is essential for your peace of mind and comfort. We issue alerts and reminders when we control Dual Fuel electric heat. Daily control times can be found at: https://lmguide.grenergy.com/.
If adequate back-up is a problem, increase your thermostat four to five degrees to warm your home before and after control periods are initiated. If you have a dual fuel system that doesn't turn back on after control has concluded, call us at 1-800-421-9959. Lake Country Power technicians respond to member needs as quickly and safely as possible.
