PGE Reports Drop In Power Use

(Portland, OR) -- Customers of Portland General Electric are doing their part to reduce energy consumption during the heat wave. PGE says customers reduced demand by 90 megawatts on Monday. The utility made the request to reduce the risk of power outages. They're asking customers to use less air conditioning and to delay dish washing and laundry to off-peak times. PGE crews are adding extra cooling systems to power equipment, commercial and industrial customers are being asked to reduce their power use, and more crews are on standby in the event of an outage.
