#extensioncords, when used improperly, cause over 3,000 house fires a year. Before plugging in, be sure to always inspect the cord before and after each use to ensure there are no deep cuts or damage. Make sure the length of the cord can cover the distance you need. Never plug two or more extension cords together. If you’re using an extension cord outside, be sure to plug into a GFCI receptacle or a portable GFCI: www.esfi.org/extension-cord-safety-tips/# ...

07/21/2022 Heat Wave Event

🚨 ATTENTION 🚨 We're heading into a heat wave 🌡️🔥 -> Help HMLP reduce its system load over the next few days. Everyone can help and do their part to keep the system strong! ☀️

By making small, temporary changes to your energy use during the hottest days of the year, you can help reduce air pollution and lower stress on the electric grid— which benefits your whole community. Please do what you can to limit your energy use between the ⚡️ peak hours ⚡️ of 2:00 PM-7:00 PM today.

Easy ways to reduce energy use during peak hours:
• Turn up your thermostat a couple of degrees(ex: from 70 degrees to 74 degrees)
• Limit the use of window or room air conditioners
• Use large electric appliances, like ovens and clothes dryers, before 2:00 PM or after 7:00 PM.

Did you know that if ground fault circuit interrupter protection was not required in homes, there would be an estimated 603% increase in electrocutions and an estimated 1,118% increase in consumer product electrocutions? #GFCIs were first introduced in the bathrooms of homes as required by the 1975 edition of the #nationalelectricalcode. GFCI requirements have grown as in-home electricity use and the amount of potential contact with water and electricity in homes increased.

Do you have #solarpanels or #photovoltaic modules installed on your home or business? Having energy storage systems helps increase your energy efficiency by storing energy for use during peak hours or during a power outage. Solar panels generate energy, charge batteries, and sell extra power back to the grid. Energy storage systems allow you to run on battery power and use off-peak energy from the grid to recharge.
