TVA asks customers to conserve electricity during this severe cold weather to reduce demand on the grid and help keep the lights on for everyone. Turn off nonessential lights, appliances, electronics and other electrical equipment. Unplug devices not in use that are still ghosting electricity, lower thermostats a couple of degrees, and if the laundry can wait until the weekend, don’t wash or dry clothes. If we all do a little, it will add up a lot. Please and Thank You!
