The company says consumers can save on energy and heating costs.
Businesses and large utility consumers should minimize energy usage as much as possible.
Lower your thermostat to at least 68 degrees. Consider wearing additional layers of clothing and turning down the thermostat even lower.
Lower the water heater temperature to 120 degrees, because it can account for as much as 25 percent of the energy consumed in your home.
