PG&E has called a SmartDay™ event for Friday, August 28, 2015. Remember to
reduce your energy use between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. to save energy when
electric rates are highest.
SmartDay tips to save energy:
• You can save by raising your air conditioner thermostat setting about
four degrees, and using your ceiling fan to circulate air. If you’re also
enrolled in SmartAC, your air conditioner already cycles during SmartDay
events, but raising your thermostat will help you save even more.
• Shift your dish washing and laundry to before 2 p.m. or after 7 p.m. on
SmartDays. Plus you can save every day by taking advantage of rebates and
upgrading to energy efficient appliances.
• Remember to unplug small appliances and devices when not in use. If left
plugged in, these items can draw power even when switched “off” or in
• On hot days, close your windows and draw shades or curtains closed to
help keep cool air from escaping.
