Faced with increasing demand for electricity because
of hot weather, SDG&E is offering a 75-cent per kilowatt hour credit
to its customers on Saturday.
SDG&E said Friday there are adequate power resources to meet the demand, but
residential customers can help reduce the strain by cutting their electricity use Saturday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Customers will earn a credit of $0.75 per kilowatt hour saved.
The utility offered these tips to help save energy at home:
-- Raise your central A/C’s thermostat setting four to six degrees.
-- Run major appliances before 11 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
