Community Energy Savings Day in the City | June 15, 2022 from 1pm to 7pm

City of Columbiana Requests Electric Customers to Voluntarily Reduce Energy Consumption this Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

As temperatures are expected to reach well into the 90’s in the next few days, Columbiana electric customers are being asked to conserve power.  “Community Energy Savings Days” is a response program for when demand for electricity is expected to be high.

Columbiana customers are requested to voluntarily lower electricity usage during the peak period from 1:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Wednesday, June 15, 2022.

Mr. Lance Willard, City Manager for Columbiana, said, “There’s plenty of power available and the grid is in good shape, but if we can conserve during these peak hours, the City can save on transmission and capacity costs next year. Lowering the peak demand will help control electricity rates. We started the Energy Savings Days Program in 2019 and our customers have done a great job doing their part.”

Customers can take simple conservation steps such as: shutting off lights when not needed; unplugging small appliances and electric chargers (especially those with small lights); raising the air conditioner thermostat a degree or two; closing curtains, drapes and blinds; doing laundry and other household chores requiring electricity during hours other than 1:00  PM through 7:00 PM; and turning off televisions, computers, and other electronic devices when not being used.

Mr. Lance Willard has further stated, “As a municipal electric system, owned by its citizens and customers, it is contingent upon those same citizens and customers to keep the electric rates for themselves and all other customers of City of Columbiana as low as possible. Our citizens and customers have the opportunity to make a difference in their system and their rates by conserving energy during these periods. As forecasts dictate throughout the summer, we will most likely be asking our citizens and customers to participate again, as we have had as many as 10 opportunities in past summers to participate.”
