Freezing Temps Thursday/Friday
SECO is well prepared for the cold weather that is forecasted for the next few nights – temps may drop into the 20s Friday. Though SECO does not anticipate the temperature drop will disrupt electric service, we've increased staffing and crews stand ready to respond quickly if rare outages occur. Members can access Storm Center to report an outage should one occur. To stay warm and safe (and to save money and energy), Members can refer to these tips:

  • Dress in layered clothing and wear some kind of head cover.
  • Keep pets inside; when necessary to walk them, do so on the grass, not the cold sidewalk.
  • Protect livestock and other animals with adequate shelter and extra feed.
  • Bring potted plants inside or cover with burlap or cloth. 
  • Check space heaters for sufficient ventilation and wire condition.
  • Never place space heaters close to flammable objects, such as drapes or bedding.
  • Make sure fireplace flues are working properly.
  • Check extension cords for breaks or fraying.
  • Do not use charcoal or gas grills indoors as they produce deadly carbon monoxide fumes.
  • Check on the elderly and infirm. 
  • Set ceiling fans on reverse to re-circulate the heat that builds up near the ceiling.
  • Set your thermostat at 68°F or lower - every degree of extra heating will increase energy usage six to eight percent.   
  • Cover windows on chilly nights with insulated curtains. 
  • Open interior blinds, drapes, or shades during the day to let the sun warm your home during cooler months.
  • Visit secoenergy.com and use our Home Energy Saver audit software to assess your home’s efficiency.
  • Contact us if you’d like to schedule an energy audit with one of our Energy Services technicians.
