Summer Energy Curtailment

Now that the warm weather is upon the campus, there may be times PPL (Electrical Grid Operator) will require DeSales University along with their other large consumers to reduce energy use. This initiate avoids brown-outs and black-outs in our area. Reduction is achieved by turning off unnecessary lights, appliances and raising HVAC temperature a few degrees. PPL gives a 2 hour notice prior to the need for energy reduction. Most reductions occur between the hours of 1 pm to 6 pm. DeSales University will send an alert when possible notifying employees. Thank you for understanding and cooperating as DeSales University participates in this important conservation initiative which positively benefits our Lehigh Valley community.
