PIQUA – The City of Piqua has issued Community Energy Savings Days for Thursday, June 20 and Friday, June 21 due to the increased demand for electricity with the hot weather.

By taking these simple steps, residents can help the Piqua Power System save money and reduce environmental impacts:

  • Use less energy during the peak demand times of 1 and 6 p.m.
  • Close window blinds or drapes to block the sun’s heat and raise the thermostat to 78 degrees or higher.
  • Shift household chores, such as doing laundry or running the dishwasher, to non-peak hours.
