Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC) has been notified the emergency in the wholesale power market has subsided as temperatures have declined.

MEC members may now discontinue the requested energy conservation measures.

MEC chief executive officer Tyler Carlson thanked members for their energy-saving efforts.

“We asked for your help and you came through,” Carlson said. “The willingness of our members to help when it’s needed is impressive and very much appreciated.”

It is nice to know the vast majority of our members understand, and appreciate, the need for load reduction at certain times to avoid the extremely high cost of purchased power during this situation.
