Electricity Use Soaring in the Heat Wave
Electricity use in Tulsa is near record levels. Tuesday was the second highest peak demand for power ever at PSO. Spokesman Stan Whiteford says there are a couple of good reasons to try and conserve electricity, it reduces strain on the system and it keeps bills lower.
He says air-conditioning is the thing that accounts for the most energy use, so it’s good to make sure air filters are clean to help keep costs down.
