Midland's Residents Are Urged To Conserve!

Midland's Residents Are Urged To Conserve!


Conserving electricity today and Tuesday in Midland has been requested by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas. They entreated residents to please cut back on the electricity use this week today and Tuesday from 3p.m. to 7p.m. Honestly, this should be brought to your attention in general to cut back your usage. Be aware of how much electricity you are using and how much you are wasting by leaving lights, fans, and unnecessary appliances plugged in.

This heat across Texas has caused temperatures to be sky high and we really need to be aware of our electrical use to help lower the risk of blackouts. ECOT representatives also stated that "record high temperatures of 103 tied the record for the date set in 2002."

If residents in Midland, or if you are reading this and are not in Midland, please help conserve your electricity as well, it will help reduce the chances of blackouts. Always remember when you cut back on your electric use, you are one more person that is helping make a difference.  


Have a blessed day!

Midland, TX

It is HOT here in Midland Texas. Not only is it hot, but it is very dry. All of Texas is in a drought and in Midland the drought is under very extreme conditions. As of July 1, 2011 all businesses and residents were demanded to obey in an outdoor watering program. These businesses and residents can only use water two times per week.

Addresses ending in even numbers may only water on Saturday beginning at 6 p.m. through Sunday at 10 a.m. and then again on Tuesday beginning at 6 p.m. through Wednesday at 10 a.m

Addresses ending in odd numbers may only water on Sunday beginning at 6 p.m. through Monday at 10 a.m. and again on Wednesday beginning at 6 p.m. through Thursday at 10 a.m.

No one should water outside during the hours of 10 a.m. to 6p.m. 

Also, several residents have been accused for watering their yards. However, if you have your own water well you are allowed to use outside water at any time. To keep having conflict, residents with water wells are putting up signs in their yards that say, " its OK if you see my watering, I have a water well!"
