Water heaters and electric heat systems in the cooperative’s program will also be affected. They will have power restored on a rolling basis starting at 9 pm, with full restoration by 11 pm.

People’s Energy Cooperative is also issuing a peak energy alert from 5:00 – 8:00 pm Thursday.  Members enrolled in the Dual Fuel or Water Heater Load Management Programs will be affected from approximately 5:00 – 11:30 p.m.
