    AES Indiana is monitoring weather conditions and prepared to meet the increased demand this week as a heat advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service through midnight on Thursday. The highest temperatures are forecasted for Wednesday and Thursday with heat indices for Marion County around 105°.

    The Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) organization, of which AES Indiana is a member, issued declarations designed to ensure a high level of preparedness and to take risk reducing, reliability-based steps during the anticipated high load period.

    AES Indiana offers tips for customers to reduce energy use and to save energy and money during this time.

    • Turn air conditioner thermostats to a higher temperature.
    • Turn off unnecessary lights.
    • Keep curtains closed during the day on the sunny side of the house.
    • Make sure cooling vents are open and unobstructed.
    • Avoid using unnecessary appliances.
    • Use ovens, dishwashers, and washers and dryers during off-peak hours, 5:00-10:00 PM, after the hottest part of the day.
    • Minimize your use of electricity when everyone else is, between the hours of Noon-6:00 PM.
    • Grill outdoors rather than using indoor stovetops or ovens.

    Given the extreme temperatures expected this week, AES Indiana will suspend all residential disconnects Monday through Thursday and will review Friday as temperatures begin to drop.
