TVA Advising Customers To Conserve Power

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Early Wednesday morning, nearly 6,000 Warren RECC customers lost power in Logan and Warren Counties. Electricity went out around 3:30 AM but was back up within a couple hours.

The past few days have been busy for power providers, but they're not out of the woods yet. The Tennessee Valley Authority has issued a power supply alert asking customers to take precautionary measures to conserve energy, due to the lower than normal temperatures.

"Just watch your energy use. Turn off everything you don't need on. If you need to charge a cell phone, go ahead and charge it but unplug the charger when your done. Unplug your coffee pot when you're not using it." said Warren RECC Communications Director, Rick Carroll.

The TVA, which provides power for seven states, said demand could again reach as high as 32,000 megawatts throughout the week. They said that's almost as much used during the cold wave that hit earlier this year, which was a record.
