(The following is a press release from Dixie Electric Power Association.)
Dixie Electric Power Association is experiencing a critical shortage of electricity. All of our members are asked to reduce their electricity use until further notice.
Please turn off all non-essential lighting, appliances and electronics. You can help by lowering your thermostat to 68 degrees. Also, you can reduce your use of water heaters, electric ovens, washing machines and dryers.
If this situation does not improve, the next step will be to enact the electric cooperative’s emergency load reduction plans, which may result in a loss of electricity for members on a rotating basis.
Dixie Electric is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative, serving seven counties in south Mississippi. Cooperative Energy and Dixie Electric are working together to resolve the issue.
