PSO says customers hit all-time peak in winter electricity usage Monday

TULSA, Okla. — PSO says, unofficially, that customers hit an all-time high for winter-time electricity usage on New Year's Day.

Usage for Monday was 2,900 megawatts, which is just 1,500 megawatts short of last summer's peak, 4,400 megawatts.

PSO says customers typically see a cheaper bill in the winter months than in the summer.

They say that those trying to save money, though, can take some extra steps to save energy.

Their website says that people wanting to save should consider installing a humidifier, fixing loose or broken duct work, opening south-facing blinds and lowering the temperature when away from the home, among other things.
