PJM Asking Customers to Converse Power

Electricity customers can take simple electricity conservation steps such as:

  • Setting thermostats lower than usual, if health permits
  • Postponing use of major electric appliances such as stoves, dishwashers, and clothes dryers until other times.
  • Turning off non-essential electric lights, equipment, and appliances.

Conserving electricity as much as possible between 4 a.m. on December 24, 2022, and 10 a.m. on December 25, 2022, will help ensure adequate power supplies. PJM continues to monitor the power supply conditions carefully.

PJM will do everything possible to keep power flowing in the region. If necessary, PJM may take additional steps, such as reducing voltage. PJM is coordinating efforts among generators, power suppliers, and local utilities. PJM is communicating about the situation with state government officials throughout the region.
