Long Islanders Asked to Conserve

June 24, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] For the second year, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has launched the “Watts Going Down” energy efficiency campaign for the summer. The program is a special energy conservation campaign specifically aimed at reducing electricity consumption on the island during periods of high heat and humidity. “Watts Going Down” enlists residential and commercial customers to become Load Reduction Volunteers to cut back on non-essential electric use when the heat and humidity arrive this summer. To date over 1100 Load Reduction Volunteers have signed up to eliminate non-essential electricity consumption on critical days during the summer months, which could represent a savings of over 106MW of electricity – enough electricity to supply over 100,000 homes.
