How can I help?

REMC will be sending out lots of communication so we can keep you informed. If we are notified that we are nearing a capacity emergency, we will give all of our members as much notice as possible so they can plan accordingly.

Most families are used to having as much power as we want, whenever we want. Unfortunately, that can’t always be the case. The best thing that any REMC member can do is cut back on your electricity usage during the most critical parts of the day, usually from 3 to 9 p.m.
