KNOXVILLE, Tenn. ― The Tennessee Valley Authority is seeing higher than normal power demand heading into the start of fall with temperatures climbing into the 90s again this week with much higher humidity than normal across the Valley.
“Temperatures across the southeast are 8-10 degrees above normal, so we encourage you to continue using the summer energy saving tips while we wait for those fall temperatures to arrive,” says Greg Henrich, general manager, TVA Balancing Authority and Resource Operations.
The Tennessee Valley Authority and your local power company are ready to keep power flowing, but there are some easy things you can do to gain energy efficiency and lessen the impact of future electric bills.
These low-cost or no-cost, easy-to-do actions can help make an immediate difference in your power use without forcing you to break even more of a summer sweat. More energy-saving tips can be found at EnergyRight Solutions.
TVA and local power companies are also doing their part to ensure reliable power will be there for you when you need it most. Less critical maintenance activities are being delayed, to ensure continued generation is available. It’s all a part of continuing our 85-year mission of service to the Tennessee Valley to deliver the power you need when you need it most—and always at the lowest feasible cost.
