[ARCHIVED] Winter Weather Warning

WinterWeather

The winter storm in our region has caused temperatures to drop well below the normal range for this time of year. As the cold weather continues, it results in extremely high demand on the power grid. Residents and businesses are urged to limit their electricity use as much as possible.

  • Turn off all unnecessary lights, appliances, and electronic equipment.
  • Turn the temperature on your thermostat down to 68 degrees. If that seems too cool, find ways to stay warm in your home without turning up the heat.
  • Do not use your dishwasher, laundry equipment, hairdryers, coffee makers, pool pump, or other home appliances unless absolutely necessary, especially between the hours of 5 to 9 a.m. and 4 to 9 p.m.

For conservation tips and more info please go to gvec.org/electric/ercot-faqs.

Additionally, city officials urge residents to stay off the roads as much as possible during this winter storm. Weather conditions are expected to deteriorate further throughout the day and over the next couple of days. Residents should monitor local weather and news for more updates about potential hazards around the area.
