FAQs

  • Q: How much difference can turning out lights and appliances really make?

    It makes a big difference -- about 400 to 450 megawatts region-wide -- which in times of peak use is a very important part of the utilities efforts to safeguard the electric system. (A megawatt is one million watts and serves roughly 300 single homes.)
