RUSHFORD, Minn. – MiEnergy Cooperative is issuing a peak alert from 2 to 2 pm on Monday.

The company, which supplies electricity to more than 18,000 customers in northeast Iowa and southeastern Minnesota, says it expect high demand on the regional grid and that can lead to increased energy costs.

The co-op says limiting power use until after 6 pm will help it keep electricity rates stable.

Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services and Heartland Power Cooperative are also asking their members to reduce electric usage from 11:00am until 7:00pm today.
