It's certainly not as hot as it was this time last summer, but there's no doubt residents are using more electricity this week with some of the hottest temperatures of this summer.
Kentucky Utilities Spokesperson Chris Whelan says that utility was not expecting any record demands this week due to the heat, but they are encouraging residents to turn up their thermostat a notch or two to save some money and energy.
Whelan says the hottest and coldest parts of the year often put a strain on customers in the form of higher bills.
Other suggestions for saving money include turning off all unnecessary lights, turning off unused appliances and using ceiling fans to circulate air. Kentucky Utilities services customers in the Crofton area and in portions of several other western Kentucky counties.
