We all need to conserve on electic use, esp. with the outages during this heat wave. It is 102 degrees at present. Unplug all the lights, small appliances, TV's, computers, printers and even the washer and dryer. They continue to draw on the power grid when plugged in and not in use. The HDTV's and computers are 2 of the highest uses of power. My power has been out twice in the past 2 days.
