KIMT-TV – Three electric cooperatives are issuing peak alerts on Tuesday afternoon and early evening.

MiEnergy Cooperative, Freeborn-Mower Cooperative Services, and People’s Energy Cooperative are asking members to reduce use of electricity between 2 and 6 pm due to expected high demand on the regional power grid.

Members are being asked to set their air conditioners to 78 degrees, use a dishwasher or do laundry later in the evening, use a microwave or a grill instead of an oven, and leave televisions or gaming systems off.
