Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative asks all customers to conserve energy during the cold snap this week by not using dishwashers, ovens, washing machines, and dryers. Outdoor temperatures in the single digits are putting an extra load on the power system as customers use more energy than they normally use to run their heating systems and water heaters.
NOVEC, headquartered in Manassas, is a not-for-profit corporation that supplies and distributes electricity and provides energy-related services to more than 153,000 customers in Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, Prince William, Stafford and Clarke counties, the City of Manassas Park, and the Town of Clifton. It is one of the largest electric cooperatives of its kind in the nation. For more information, visit www.novec.com.
