Geneva Asks Residents To Conserve Power Jan. 28

Turn off electric lights and appliances that you do not need or are not using.

PJM Interconnection, the electricity grid operator for Geneva and the region, is asking consumers to conserve electricity on Tuesday, Jan. 28. The call for conservation is prompted by the continued frigid weather that will push up demand for electricity.

PJM asks consumers to conserve electricity, if health permits — especially from 6 to 10 a.m. and 5 to 9 p.m. Jan. 28. Electricity customers can take simple electricity conservation steps:

  • Set thermostats lower than usual, if health permits;
  • Postpone using major electric appliances such as stoves, dishwashers and clothes dryers until mid-day or 9 p.m., when the demand for electricity decreases; and
  • Turn off electric lights and appliances that you do not need or are not using.

The City of Geneva and PJM appreciate your consideration and will continue to carefully monitor power supply conditions.

Residents who have questions can call the City's Public Works Electric Division at 630-232-1503.

Ok citizens it is time for us all to wake up and ask for some resignations from city officials. This is another example of poor decision making, back door deal making with the procurement of power. As pointed out in A Chicago Tribune Investigation, it was a deal that if City officials would of did their due diligence would of and should have never been agreed upon. Asking to conserve energy is -40 degree weather? Time for a new Mayor, City Business manager and new city council who believe in the city as a whole and not a few. I have enjoyed my 50 years living in this community but to see what the leadership has happened in the last 10 is shameful.
