Minnesotans Asked to Conserve Energy

Blog by: Dennis O’Brien, President of Gopher Heating

Hot temperatures in Minnesota lately have left the majority of us no other option than staying indoors in the blasting AC for days on end. Just recently, Minnesota Power asked customers to conserve energy due to the high temps and increased energy usage from air conditioners.

It is most important to conserve energy between the hours of noon and 8 PM.  Minnesota Power suggests delaying the use of appliances such as washers/dryers and stoves, and setting the thermostat to 77 degrees during these hours.

Playing your part to help curb Minnesota’s energy use is easy: keep your thermostat at the recommended 77 degrees when you leave for work, and make oven-free lunches and dinners.
