How to prepare for this cold snap

Jan 14, 2020, 21:50 PM

As cold temperatures continue across Alberta, we'd like to remind our customers how to save energy and prepare in the event of a power outage. As the temperatures drop, the demand for electricity is increasing with the heat turning up and additional space heaters running.

How can you stay warm and conserve energy? 

  • Smart thermostats save you money by controlling the temperature when you're not home. On average, they can reducing heating and cooling costs by 23 per cent per year.
  • Close the doors to rooms that aren't used
  • Try not to use major appliances during peak hours
  • Wear a sweater or wrap up in a blanket before turning up the heat
  • Try an electric blanket instead of a space heater
