Almost all of you are aware that we are living through one of the hottest summers in recent memory, especially in Texas. As an Aveda Environmenal Lifestyle Salon and Spa organization, we pride ourselves on the practice of being an environmentally conscious company. From the products that we use, to the ways that we conserve and protect environmental resources, we try to provide a living model for others to follow. As you can appreciate, the high temperatures have meant a dramatic increase in the amount of electricity being consumed. And with a sizeable portion of our society - such as the elderly and the economically challenged - especially vulnerable to the threat of rolling blackouts and other types of outages, the current landscape could prove a recipe for disaster.
Towards helping to decrease pressures on the Texas grid and ensure that affordable energy is available for everyone in our community, we are encouraging you take a very simple, yet meaningful, action - that is, beginning today and for the remainder of August, please raise your thermostat by two degrees during the crucial peak usage time frame of 12:00 noon through 7:00 p.m. daily.
We are also encouraging you to decrease your August energy usage so as to lighten the load on the Texas energy grid. To help you, we have prepared a list of energy savings tips that you can put into action. By conserving energy particularly during peak usage hours, we will ensure that everyone will have access to energy as needed. Plus, these tips represent some great ways for you to realize lower energy bills yourself this summer.
Together, we can all make a difference.
