[ARCHIVED] Request to Reduce Power Usage

The regional transmission operator has requested that utilities in our region, including City Water & Light, ask customers to VOLUNTARILY reduce their electricity usage.  This is especially needed from 5:00 to 9:00 pm today.  Due to the demand and available generation, they felt that this was a prudent request to make of the customers in Arkansas.  This is NOT a request for mandatory curtailments, but a precautionary action to help accommodate the reliability of providing for all customers throughout Arkansas during these extremely cold temperatures.  Please share this request with others.  Thank you!
