Appalachian Power encourages customers to use energy-saving tips during heat wave

June 14, 2024

CHARLESTON, W.Va., June 14, 2024 – Extreme temperatures are expected across Appalachian Power's service territory this weekend and into next week. During this period of hot weather, air conditioners may be working hard to keep homes comfortable, which increases energy use and electric bills.

Appalachian Power encourages its customers to take steps to help save energy and money.  


  • Set thermostats just a few degrees higher, especially when you aren't home.
  • Avoid using heat-producing appliances such as ovens or dryers during the hottest parts of the day.
  • Keep windows covered during the day, especially those facing south, to save on cooling costs.
  • Ensure ceiling fans are spinning counterclockwise to push cooler air down.
  • Unplug appliances and electronics when not in use.

Customers can find additional tips at AppalachianPower.com and by checking their energy dashboard for personalized recommendations.

Appalachian Power is also coordinating with PJM, its regional transmission organization, to monitor the supply and demand for electricity in its region.
