We would like to thank everyone for their efforts on 7/25/16 in helping us to reduce the amount of power purchased during the period of highest demand for electricity thus far this year, which occurred between the hours of 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. While at this point it is hard to quantify the amount of reduction that we achieved from our customers, it was apparent that overall, many of you were helping us to keep our demand for energy as low as possible. We appreciate your interest and participation in this worthwhile exercise and we hope that we can count on you in the future, should the need arise, to assist us with future conservation requests.
