Energy-Saving Tips from Puget Sound Energy
BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Puget Sound Energy is encouraging customers to be more energy conscious as temperatures heat up over the next few days. Across its service area, PSE’s electric infrastructure is currently performing well, and energy usage is being monitored closely.
Over the years, power consumption has risen during the summertime as customers add some form of air conditioning in their homes. With that growth, considering energy efficiency will improve comfort while saving energy and keeping bills low.
PSE plans for peak customer usage by constantly monitoring the health of its system and investing in infrastructure projects to keep the system redundant and reliable.
Local cooling locations are available at the Snoqualmie Fire Station (Friday-Monday), the Snoqualmie Library (Saturday), and the Snoqualmie YMCA Community Center (Sunday-Monday). Learn more at cityofsnoqualmie.org.
PSE also recommends the following tips to save energy and keep cool:
Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible. For those with central air or air conditioning, PSE recommends no lower than 75 degrees. That might seem on the warm side, but customers can save up to 5 percent on their electric bill by taking that simple step.
