Xcel Energy asking customers to limit electrical use

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - Because of high temperatures, Xcel Energy is asking customers to limit their electrical use until 7:00 Tuesday evening.

They are asking you to turn off any unneeded lights and appliances and to keep the thermostat at 78 degrees while you are home.

And to not use any major appliances such as washers and dryers until after 7:00pm.

They say doing so will not put as much load on the power grid and will reduce outages.
