Would you like to save up to $168 per year on your electric bill? This savings could be possible if you allow Truman Public Utilities to control three of your large appliances, with the major ones being your air conditioner, electric water heater and clothes dryer.

A load management system allows the utility company to control certain types of electrical usage (loads) in order to lower the electrical usage at certain (peak) times. Controlling peak loads means using the TPU electrical system more efficiently. The switches will be purchased by TPU and installed by a qualified electrician.

For more information, stop by the TPU Office to see Judi or call (507) 776-6501.
