JOHNSON, Vt. (AP) - With some of the hottest weather of the season expected this week, the Vermont Electric Cooperative is encouraging customers to help “Beat the Peak” by conserving energy through Thursday afternoon.

Members are being asked to reduce electricity usage from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday by turning off unnecessary lights, delay using major appliances like washers and driers, and raising the air conditioner thermostat by 3 degrees.

The cooperative says that can help control rising costs that impact rates.

Highs were expected to get into the upper 80s and low 90s in parts of Vermont.
