Personnel with the Madison Electric Department announced tonight (Sunday) that the city will declare an energy alert on Monday due to extremely cold weather, and they are asking city utility customers for their cooperation.

City electricity consumers are encouraged to voluntarily conserve or limit their energy use between6 a.m. to midnight on Monday and assist in controlling the peak electricity demand on the city’s power system.

City utility personnel request that consumers turn off any unnecessary lights and space heaters. They also ask that utility customers delay any major appliance usage such as clothes dryers, washers and dishwashers until the alert is lifted.
