Additional periods of energy reduction expected this week

First Energy has notified JCU that additional requests for energy reduction are expected for the remainder of the week due to the high temperatures in the Midwest and East Coast.

During these periods, air conditioning and lighting will be de-energized to reduce electricity usage. Elevators and life-safety equipment will continue to operate.

This is an aspect of the partnership between First Energy and the efforts of our JCU Sustainability Committee. The goal is to manage our energy consumption and costs as efficiently and effectively as possible and to be a good citizen in the community during times of stress on the power grid.
